Letter: Canada Post reaches into ‘lost and found heaven’

Canada Post employees took on the challenge and the parcel was returned—intact—to the sender.

To the editor:

Recently a friend on Denman Island mailed a small gift parcel to my daughter, addressed only as “Susan & the Boys” (actually cats) with toys for “the boys” and a card for Susan.

She made a mistake on the address and, with no real name on the parcel, it never arrived.

To make matters worse she even mixed up her return address, using Susan’s postal code. After weeks of waiting, everyone assumed the parcel had gone to a ‘lost and found heaven’ forever.

But Canada Post came through. Canada Post employees took on the challenge and the parcel was returned—intact—to the sender. Thank you so much for your diligence.

The sender is happy, the recipient is happy, and “the boys” love their fuzzy new toys.
