Canada Post and Air Canada

Air Canada says it is all Canada Postís fault that I havenít received the paper copy of my flight booking after two weeks. Shouldíve been her in 2-3 business days.

You might think that when they take a monthís pension off my credit card theyíd spring for Registered Delivery, or whatever is in vogue this year.

So itís all the more alarming to read that Canada Post is thinking of using Airplanes.

If this doesnít pan out, weíll have an airplane business that canít use a postal business and a postal business that canít use airplanes.

Letís see where that gets us.

Canada Post and not Air Canada

So, even if Canada Post doesnít go on strike, again, we could have problems.

I found it this month that Canada post canít cope with sheets of paper from Air Canada, according to the script-reading Air Canada lady. (Does their script really have a line that reads ďIím sorry; I canít help youĒ?).

Hamilton is correct. You donít need a strike to have an impact on deliveries. Just regular mail is enough to cause a hassle.

ďAlternate Delivery MethodsĒ would be FedEx and UPS, the original parcel delivery services that Canada post was trying to muscle in on, so presumably if I am an independent business and switch to UPS or FedEx for mail delivery, I may as well stay with them for parcel delivery, right?
