oops - I guess I should have specified CLOTH diapers!
If I understand it correctly, until the HST comes into effect, there is no PST on cloth diapers, so that's why I thought that they might be exempt.
Also, going on the info I got from the Lands End catalog, anything made in the USA would be exempt, and the diapers I'm considering are US made. But, whilst that might be the theory, in practice I'm not sure that a customs agent would take that into account. I once ordered cloth diapers from the US, and the seller thought she was doing me a favour by labelling the package as "fabric" and I got dinged for the duties and a $5 handling charge. By the time it got delivered and I needed to pay the charges on the spot, it was too late.
