There is no rule about disclosing what are shipping unless its hazardous material and firearms are shippable without any process other than normal shipping processes and an ATT if it is a restricted firearm. Other than that, CP doesn't care.
Canada Post is simple. Insure it for what the value of the item is. If the item gets lost, make a claim. I've gotten claims sorted out within 30 days. A good retailer that insures a package is perfectly safe shipping by CP. All this talk in this thread about CP being a crappy shipping system - any shipping company will lose and break stuff. Accept it and insure it and move on.
Sounds to me like you need a cooperative shipper who communicates in this case. IF he did indeed ship it, he is the only one who can make the claim and follow it up. Sounds to me like he needs to get his head out of his ass and service his customer.
