If I remember correctly they are not allowed to ask what is in the parcel being mailed, only if it a dangerous goods item.
If they label it as a firearm then anyone handling it can lose it.
Thats how it was explained to me by a senior administration official for Canada post

Some of them are making it there business. My buddy told them it was fishing rods but they stated it was to heavy for fishing rods. No standard.

FYI

Asking what is inside I am not 100% but they sure can open it if they suspect issues per the canada post act

The Canada Post Corporation Act, prepared by the Department of Justice, grants us the sole privilege in Canada of collecting, transmitting and delivering letters ...

 

Inspection of Mail

 

  • 41 (1) The Corporation may open any mail, other than a letter, to determine in any particular case

    •  whether the conditions prescribed by regulations made pursuant to paragraph 19(1)© have been complied with;

    •  whether the manner prescribed by regulations made pursuant to paragraph 19(1)(e) has been adhered to; or

    •  whether the mail is non-mailable matter.

The website says it is temp due to the covid stuff (something about signatures).  Let's hope that is true.  :-)

After selling 6 or 7 guns in a 2 week span, The nosy old bayooch at the brookside PO kept asking me if it was a gun...twice I said to her...NOT that it's any of your business WHAT i'm shipping, but they're golf clubs.  few days later..SAME thing..crowd there, .I got fed up and told the nosy old bayooch  that it was a very large vibrator..she could open it if she'd possibly like to order one too....never,,,EVER asked me again ! laugh.png laugh.png 

 

Although, I did give her a wink a few times after that, when  I handed her a scope in brown paper I was shipping out !!cool.png cool.png
