How was explaining the reason for the increased costs, me throwing stones? smirk2

As for your link that is recent due to some changes made to their operations by the government without them having the funds to back it up, it's not the norm but leave it to the news to spin it that way.

My father in-law worked for Canada Post for 40 years so I have a good line on the information and what is actually going on with them.

Shipping from the US sucks but I've still gotten deals. Handling fees from couriers are much worse, it has to be shipped via USPS.

SteveC, I don't see anywhere that it says taxpayer dollars were given to the USPS, sure they don't pay taxes on the property they own or rent neither does the Dept of Defense or the Dept Of Agriculture. living in Canada I would think you would know all about subsidized Government programs and not so much about US programs.

The fact is the USPS receives roughly $18 billion in taxpayer-backed subsidies annually yet is still failing. (As posted above)

American taxpayers give an $18 billion gift to the post office every year. (As posted above)

Apparently you can't read. Maybe because of a lack of subsidies to schools in your area from taxpayers? smirk2

Second my brother and other family/family and freidns live in various states in the U.S. and I frequently travel there both to visit and for work, further we get all of your TV here and you get none of ours so you might want to think again about how much I know compared to what you know when it comes to each-other's countries. wink

Good that CP is finally living in reality vs prior world.
All companies had to cover or disclose pension labilities, about time for CP to join the real world.

I always enjoy(ed) the best of both worlds: I could order from Rock Auto, have the items shipped to Detroit for a fraction of what it'd cost to Canada, then take 20 minutes (depending on how smoothly the traffic at the border is moving) and head over to pick everything up at the FedEx office. It's been a major perk of living in a border city!

They don't charge the Brokerage Fee any longer because they are charging you HST now. So it comes without that added cost. I think they realized they were loosing business.

The price difference is a lot more than HST.
Price a certain parcels cost from Houston to Detroit - then price the same parcel to Windsor (across the river in Canada)
The price to Windsor will be a WHOLE LOT MORE than 13%
