I reiterate, this is the *Canadian government* we're talking about.  Y'know, 
the one whose motto is "We never met a transaction we couldn't tax, or a 
citizen's pocket we couldn't pick."  The onus on you is to prove that it's 
returned property -- supposedly, you're required to contact 'em beforehand, 
fill out forms, blah blah blah.

P.S.:  Besides, they'd know it was fake if you said "leave something good 
behind, like a case of Molsons."  Molsons is crap.  Now, Big Rock or Granville 
Island, on the other hand, THAT'S beer!  ;-)
