A Victoria mother who thought her daughter’s Christmas care package was stolen by a grinch was relieved when Canada Post got the package to Calgary just in the nick of time.
Sandy Sirdiak sent a box of gifts to her daughter in Calgary in mid-December. By Dec. 20, her daughter hadn’t received the package. When Sirdiak contacted Canada Post, it insisted the package had been delivered on Dec. 15. They said it had been left on the front doorstep.
Sirdiak figured the package had been stolen, prompting her to write an angry letter to the Calgary Herald, scolding the “grinch” who would take the gift destined for her 20-year-old daughter, who would be spending Christmas without her family.
