Anyone with Canada Post experience: Mississauga to Vancouver

Hi I ordered something from ebay.ca. Canada post shipping says item processed 4/13 then item in transit on 4/14. Both in Mississauga.
Expedited parcel.
Estimated delivery date is 4/21.
Anyone with experience with Canada Post, how long does it take normally from Mississauga to Vancouver? Sorry if its a dumb question, Im not very patient.

In what universe has it ever been 3?

My last Mississauga to Vancouver took 5 days so they blew their own time line of 4 days.
That's assuming Mississauga is Toronto.

Expedited usually won't update in-between Mississauga and Vancouver. It's going by truck, but Canada Post is pretty fast at trucking between these two locales. It is guaranteed service (most of the year), so ask the seller to put in a claim with Canada Post and refund the shipping cost if it's > 5 business days. Or suggest 50% refund on shipping because the seller has to do all the legwork with Canada Post.
Are you sure you wish to carry out this operation? You betcha.

I got free shipping anyways. It's a parcel that needs a signature. Estimated delivery date is 4/21 same as delivery standard for now. Still at item in transit (Mississauga)

Still in transit for some reason. Maybe Easter long weekend has something to do with it? Can I do anything if it doesn't come under the 5 days? Shipped 4/14 so should be here on 19th...but estimated is 21st

Ordered April 12th. It's in Richmond BC now so it should come tomorrow as expected delivery.
Wish they could process it faster and put it out for delivery today to Surrey

^ You have to take into account the Easter long weekend and other statutory holidays. SMH.

It's 5 business days.

Some services have on-time guarantee. If it does the shipper (not you) can claim the shipping costs.

WTF guys. It was marked as out for delivery and I checked again, someone was home to retrieve the package and sign in. It says notice left where and when to pickup. I go to my mailbox like I do daily and I find a slip with when and where I can pickup. It says tomorrow after 1pm. What a complete waste if time, they didn't even come to my door. I went to the address anyways and they told me they had too many packages to be processed, I wonder why the fu** why??? On the phone with Canada Post right now to discuss this BS

Is this the first time you made an online order? You won't accomplish anything by calling them.
