Canada Pooooooooosssst!

Recently I've discovered that it costs $8.28 to send a 5-oz. package by regular mail from Halifax to Bridgewater. Bridgewater is an hour's drive away. I've also discovered that it costs just $1.31 more than the above price, to send a package weighing more than a pound all the way from Toronto to Bridgewater - 742 miles as the crow flies.

That makes NO SENSE. Why? Is it all the twists and turns on the 104???

Acadian Lines would take a package to Bridgewater that is 12 times the size of the 5-oz. package, for just $1.50 more. And it would arrive within two hours, not three or four days.
