I needed some stamps for Christmas mail so I picked up
a Magi booklet from the Canada Post Office
When comparing with the original, this supposed reprint
has the same barcode number and at first glance looks the
same as before.
On closer look though it appears that the blue colour is a bit darker
and the gold has less shine
I can't understand why these booklets were recalled and reprinted when it seems like very few were defective.
Just exchange or give the customer back their money for the
defective ones returned to any Canada Post
or Shoppers outlets.
That's all, finito. Why bother with all this when 99% of the
public don't even use stamps any more and most of the younger
ones haven't a clue what a stamp is and have never mailed a letter in their life.
I also would like to know if the printer did the reprints gratis,
since it was their fault or did Canada Post
(we the tax payers)
pay for this.

Here the difference is more obvious.
