"Canadian customers tell me it is their customs agents that are the problem. Canada's bureaucracy is a nightmare much like what the socialist democrats want to create here."Canada Customs is an old line empire building bureaucracy suspicious of this new fangled thing called "free trade" and fearful of its potential to dismantle its empire.
Canada Post is not a government department. It is a Crown Corporation with a mandate to return a profit and it has done so for the past 16 years. It declares dividends just like any other corporation and pays the dividends to its only shareholder, the Crown in right of Canada. The dividends go into the consolidated revenue fund.
The corporation made a profit in its last fiscal year but unlike prior years it did not declare a dividend because it is re-investing the profit in a modernization program.
