What's Up With That Canada Post

Okay I just don't get it, I don't understand the postal system. But then perhaps we're not meant to?

Today I sent two parcels in the mail they were small the same size roughly the same weight. One going to Alberta one going to North Eastern US. Please tell my WHY oh WHY does it cost me 5.05 to send the parcel to the US and 8.00 to send the one within Canada?

I just don't get it.

i may be able to answer your query about canada post as i do work for a courier company.
Depending on where the pkg is going in alberta it would cost more. Smaller, northern towns are pricey and the transit times would vary to them as the post may only go to certain locations on certain days.
The pkg going to the states would be cheaper as it doesn't have as far to go. However depending upon what is being sent it may be held at customs.
I have to deal with these issues everyday. People don't realize that even documents being sent to the states need to have customs documentation.
It is kinda weird to the average person that the alberta pkg would cost more. but that is the cost of eggs and butter! Just my "two stitches".
