I went over to Canada post to ship out a few hats as presents within Ontario...to ship 2hrs outside of Toronto $17 + HST, to Vancouver $20 + HST.

First of all this makes no sense for local shipping to be so expensive and then for the differential between GTA to Vancouver to be so small ($3). WTF

unreal

Well, a single $1 stamp sends a letter to Vancouver or the next door.

Explain why we pay $2,000 Delivery for cars that were assembled in Ontario, meanwhile Americans pay half for the same car.

Meanwhile, I can order a pair of socks from Aliexpress for a $1 shipped from China. Something doesn't add up for sure.

That's WAY different... you need to order things YEARS in advance if you're buying from there.

I thought Spark was a robot from the old movie and I kind of remember seeing him telling some engineer showing the equation for a clear metal that the guy would event years later - porschetr

Meanwhile Canada Post is supposed to be not for profit and meanwhile they've had profits every year up until the last strike.
