The stonewalling continues

I like to be charitable. I like to believe people. I like to trust people when they tell me something. This, perhaps, is why I find myself in the situation today where the Airport Postal Outlet has only two business days left to live, and yet we have no meaningful answers from Canada Post or […]

Some “accommodation” from Canada Post

I’ve received the following email from an Airport Postal Outlet customer. Again, my response is below his email.

Email from Canada Post

Seems Canada Post has taken notice of this website (as I hoped they would, of course), as I’ve received an email from the Manager, Western Zone, C&D Operations, Metro Vancouver. Hopefully I’ll have something new and coherent here soon.

Dancing with Canada Post

I made careful notes during these conversations, so everything here is based on those notes and, bizarre as some of them sound, I have not made up anything. One thing is clear to me: The people I have been […]
