Craig, totally bummed out to hear about your business loss. I hope the Police nail whoever is responsible for the thefts.

Sting operation?

At least around here Police (capitalized) refers to the band of that name; their lead singer goes by Sting.

I get it now.

My comment was very sincere - I have met Craig a few times and been in his lens rental business - top notch guy and top notch business. I hope they nail the thieves and Craig gets his gear back safe and sound

Don't get me wrong, I hope for precisely that as well; I had their 200-400 a few weeks back and being able to ship it in the mail was very important due to the local couriers being flaky.

Technically, since we're getting picky on capitalization, wouldn't The have to be capitalized? 

If you're going to be so droll, don't stand so close to me.

This is a very unfortunate story.

My hope is it ultimately works out in your favor and those participating in the theft are found out.

Insurance on he packages won't help much as I was told directly by a Canada post employee that although you can add insurance to your package good luck getting the value back if there is an issue.  They recommended me to use one of the big guys if insurance was actually important. LOL. Loved the honestly.  Cost a bit more but I felt safer.  Over they last number of years in the hundred of parcels I have received I have only had issue with Canada post.  Be it missing items, delays in shipping while in Canada posts hands.  Then they have the gull to raise prices for continued poor service gotta love government union employees that you can't trust anymore and well you know are out of touch with reality in todays job world.

That's awful! I never had a problem with US Priority Mail insurance . . . seemed like a pride thing talking to our postmaster down here.

I'm really sorry to hear about this and hope that you are able to recover the stolen property and put the thief or thieves behind bars. 

I'm not surprised to hear that Canada Post is awful, given my experiences.  It seems like the items I've ordered from Canada don't appear in my tracking until they cross the border, and the last two eBay shipments I've sent to Canada have either disappeared from tracking or show delivery to the wrong address.  In both cases, I was fortunate enough to have honest buyers who didn't try to con me, but I don't understand how the service could be so poor.   As dstppy says, I guess those of us in the US should feel fortunate to have our mail service.
