I booked another itinerary on the phone with BA and it's almost CAD100 cheaper than avios.com

BA phone: YYZ DUB CDG ~CAD135
avios.com: YYZ DUB CDG ~CAD231

Itamatrix shows:
Ireland Passenger Charge (UP) CA$17.20
Carrier-imposed surcharge (YQ) CA$67.55
Toronto Airport Improvement Fee (SQ) CA$25.00
Canadian Harmonized Sales Tax (ON) (RC) CA$3.25
Canadian Air Travelers Security Charge (CA) CA$25.91
Just for comparison:
Total with YQ: $138.91
Total without YQ: CAD71.36

BA phone booking charges fuel and the difference is FX. Avios.com shows a completely different amount than itamatrix.

Then I tried to make a dummy booking on Aer Lingus website. It doesn't give me a breakdown of the taxes - just a lumpsum of CAD138.9 (same as itamatrix)

Looking at the fine print, these are the only clearly listed surcharges:
1. Insurance, security and emission surcharges
Ex-Ireland €6.89 per flight
Ex-North America $6.37 per flight
Ex-UK 5.10 per flight

2. Fuel surcharges
Each-way per passenger or equivalent
