Shipping tubes cost?

I'm looking to do some shipping, but it's irregular and sporadic so no monthly subscription would really be economical for me.

It would mostly be tubes say 3x3x30", 2kg. Shipping within Canada, Canada Post seems to give a reasonable rate of about $25 - but even that seemed more than I thought it woudl be? Using any of fedex/purolator/UPS and the rates are at least double. Looking to ship to USA or international and the rates get crazy out of whack.

Am I doing the calculations wrong or something? Is there an easier way to calculate rates across carriers or find the cheaper rates?
