I too experienced lengthy delays from last fall until this spring with packages from China. I mentioned my recent experience with the UK because it was such a contrast with the other poster's in an almost identical scenario.arnycus wrote: ↑Aug 4th, 2017 10:20 amExcept these ones reported thousands of very similar cases here by now, all showing the clear trend of Canada Post significantly degraded lower shipping cost packets processing over the last 3 years, and also degraded electronic information services for their entire products range. And many of these ones posted long lists of documented packet delivery patterns for extended time frame.
I've also had better delivery times with stuff from China this summer. "Better" in this case means about a month rather than several months as before. Perhaps I'm just lucky. I'd like to believe that the delays before were in part due to the fentanyl crisis that required an increase in the number and thoroughness of inspections for which CPC and CBSA were ill prepared.
In any case most of the stuff I buy overseas is valued at under (or slightly over) CA$20 in order to avoid brokerage/duty/HST charges. My expectations of fast/tracked delivery are tempered by the reality that on low-end stuff like this there's not much money for the shipper to spend on "free" shipping. Hence they're going to use the cheapest option they can find.
What would be the basis of such a CA suit? What commitment did CPC make to us that they've failed (literally) to deliver? I get that there have been major delays and that these may still be occurring. But a CA suit won't go anywhere. A concerted campaign in the media and letter-writing campaign to MPs might (although I have my doubts.)That evidence is more than enough to start Class Action against CP, while demanding from Canada Government to implement drastic reversal of current CP packet delay policies introduced 3 years ago, and restore adequate public access to mail tracking info.
