Canada Post has published suggested mailing dates for Christmas cards and packages.”Our goal is to get everyone’s presents under the tree by Christmas,” said Canada Post spokesperson Anik Losier. Islanders should probably send them early anyway, as those are suggested dates, not guaranteed dates, she added.”Give it a few extra days in case there’s a storm,”said Ms Losier, “we always encourage people to send things early.” Ms Losier said that Canada Post tries to fly mail off the islands if it looks like the mail will be delayed by weather more than a couple of days, but given the extreme weather on the islands, it is still best to leave extra time.The suggested date for mailing cards within the province is Dec. 18, Dec. 17 for outside of the province but within the country. Packages should be sent Expedited parcel before Dec. 12 and Xpresspost before Dec. 19.
