Here in Canada, we don’t trust Ponies. They are too cute to not be up to something. Also, we have access to an unlimited supply of Moose. That is why our early postal system was called the Swamp Donkey Express. Moose have the added bonus of built-in antlers to hang your parcels from. That is why there was no postal service in the winter as the antlers are shed. Also, it’s cold in the winter who cares about mail that much?
You were also able to have packages sent by Voyageur, via canoe. And the 2-month Prime service involved the moose in a canoe with the Voyageur. It was very expensive and completely unreliable. Much like my fact-checking. #TDC1494
