    Sent a parcel May 28th to Ontario from BC. Just arrived today June 23rd, after I started a service ticket #. It was misplaced for three weeks, once I complained it miraculously showed up 3-4 hours later.

    Another parcel shipped from Quebec on Thursday last week, I received Monday this week. Three days from Quebec to the East Kootneys. Never can tell with CP during this pandemic. They advise parcels in numbers that double the Christmas load. Six foot social distancing does not help the process either.

    I believe there are anti-firearm employees that deliberately damage or slow down the entire delivery process for kicks. There's very sick people in this world......

    As for OP. There hasn’t been an on time guarantee OR a money back guarantee since FEBRUARY so at least get educated before whining.
    Perhaps, you need to brush up on your basic reading and comprehension skills before making comments?

    The problem is not with Canada Post having delays. The problem is that they're charging premium prices for best effort service. It is a fairly basic concept that if you can't deliver the service you're charging for, you should only be charging for the service you can. There are consumer protection laws against such scams. I'm pretty sure that if I tell my boss that I will be working 1/10 of my normal productivity but want to be paid 100%, calling him a whiner if he disagrees won't go far. The attitude of calling valid complaints "whining" is why CP is such a sh1tshow with no accountability.

    I have never had an issue with CP. Iíve been using them for about 4 years for tons of transaction firearms related. 87 to be exact. I think the longest I had something take to go cross country was 6 days (AB to NB) and that was over a weekend as well. The pricing isnít ridiculous (UPS in almost always double the price for the 3 times I had to use them). Never had a damaged package from them and never have had a buyer complain that theirs was wrecked either.

    Iíll keep using them. Best option Iíve found.

    this totally every package that has been CP when it didn't arrive at expected time I started complaint got it moving the next day to arrive with in 2 or 3 afterwards.

    but OP is right, there is no reason to be paying "expedited" prices for "ground" service.

    I think it is the fact that IRG tacks insurance onto the shipping fee so it makes the price seem ridiculous. Many of us paid close to $60 to have a rifle shipped by Canada post from AB to ON for delivery service that so far has amounted to 15 days and counting at this point. Your experiences with CP aside, this is what the OP and others are speaking about.

    I'm okay with them saying they can't "respect delays anymore". But I'm not okay with them continuing to charge for premium services & then not delivering on it. As Air2Air says below, they should not be charging for a service they can not deliver on.

    Canada Post has given me a heart attack three times during this pandemic.

    If it’s late it’s late; they tell me to expect delays now when I send parcels. My last update on my IRG package was June 9th, which is still sitting at the Edmonton facility.

    It took two months to send my rifle to DLASK. As long as they don’t lose it I’m okay I guess...
