All of our web transactions are processed with expedited parcel but if the customer notes it as a business address, we'll send it purolator or same day courier as we require a signature on every outbound package. CP is just a convenience for our customers that want stuff sent to residential addresses.
most local (and some larger) couriers are cheaper for packages then CP for overnight in a "1 day" distance radius ... they start getting expensive when it HAS to be X today and stuff like that...
