Be careful here, Hookah Hub as far as I know ships from the US, not Canada:

"Canadian Shipping and Duties Overview
We offer our valued Canadian customers the speed and reliability of shipping to Canada with USPS (United States Postal Service). We always recommend Canadians use USPS as you will have a much greater chance of not paying duties, taxes and/or tariffs; however there are no guarantees.
Plus with our toll free phone number (1-888-212-7377) you never have to worry about paying long distance fees just to talk with us. Also unlike our competition we don't charge you extra shipping and handling fees just for being a Canadian customer. In fact we are the only major Canadian owned and operated hookah shop online today."

And from what I can tell the big taxes and duties seems to be on tobacco. Just the pipe itself might be subject to import taxes but I doubt they are as high as the tobacco taxes, not really sure though as I have never paid import taxes on anything.
