Registered Mail To USA

A strong word of caution to anyone using registered mail to the USA. If you send a registered letter to the USA it will track inside Canada until it reaches the US system and then it is thrown in the regular first class mail system in the US.If it is noticed when arriving at the destination they will request a signature but in many cases this won't happen. The US decided to opt out of a 161 country agreement on registered mail this past January.They stated that they felt the rest of the world did not provide the same service so they decided to make their own rules.This allows employees in both postal services Canada/USA to steal registered mail with ease....and guess what....it is happening a lot.How do I know this you ask....in March we shipped $53,000 worth of gold in 7 packages over 12 days to 2 different addresses and only one larger envelope showed up at the other end.Canada Post security just completed a comprehensive investigation and said the packages all made it into the US system and were now no longer trackable.I am also aware of another high value shipment that was shipped at the same time and it was stolen....we have the same insurance company.By the way all these packages went thru Ile St Laurent, Quebec.....even the other package....interesting fact don't you think!So the $13 Canada Post collects for registered mail is really just a sucker fee....I am personally glad they are on strike...now I ship everything Fedex.....
