I know exactly where you are coming from Adam. I knew I could not be the only dissatisfied customer of our national mail service, which continues to go downhill with each passing federal government that we find ourselves voting into office.

Have any of you tried the tracking service on the Canada Post website? In my humble opinion, it sucks big time.

For instance, what is the point of being told that the parcel you were expecting days, sometimes weeks, earlier was delivered two days prior to when the notice is posted on the website. Useless, absolutely useless.

I for one would like to know precisely where my package is “in the system.”

I don’t need to be told that my parcel has been delivered to me, without an explanation telling where it got to on its mystery tour to my mailbox.

Instead of posting this now defunct morsel, surely they could put our hard-earned tax dollars to better use.
