Yup...it's Federal property and DeJoy has once again, in true MAGA fashion shown he is inept as can be! How/why he is still the Postmaster General is beyond comprehension.
I live near a post office that's been asking for three extra delivery trucks since 2017.
Go figure...

The office of postmaster general is filled differently from cabinet positions. If it were filled by appointment of the incoming president, like say secretary of defense, labor, interior, Etc. Etc. Mr. Dejoy would be long gone. The postmaster general is appointed by a board of governors, not by the president of the US, like everybody else. The present board of governors are MAGA Republicans, so don't hold your breath on getting those three extra delivery trucks, or anything else that would increase efficiency, or speed up mail service. That might mean that mail in ballots might get through, horrors.

Canada Post is doing a fine job, letters and parcels get delivered in an appropriate time frame….slower delivery of packages from the U.S. but that tends to be a customs delay more than anything….
Old_Hobo;

Glad to hear our northern neighbors are doing it right. Yes, customs can be a problem, so can the cost of international mail. I sent a few N-scale train cars to a modeler in Canada, and was flabbergasted at the postage. Not Canada's fault. It was the US Postal service charging about triple what it would cost to mail the same package within the US. o_O
