If I buy gold bar or gold jewelery from Dubai airport duty free shops, will I have to pay taxes when entering Canada?

Question regarding Canadian Tax & Duty free policy

Report as

In addition to any other taxes payable, jewelry imported into Canada is subject to customs duties. The rate of duty is dependent on type of jewelry and country of origin, but it ranges from 0% to 8.5%.

Okay! At YVR (vancouver airport), customs dept charged me 12% (probably HST ?) on the receipt price. It was regular gold jewellery bought from Dubai Airport duty free shop. YVR customs even didn't want to see it; just charged on my custom declaration price!
