Tracking Mail

Canada Post is bizarre. Consider the following tracking information:
2009/11/28 International item has left Canada
2009/12/01 International shipment has arrived in the destination country
The "destination country" is the USA. Canada and the USA share a border. There is zero space between us. How, then, does it take three days to cross zero space? (It's probably time spent in customs, I know. But then why don't they call it that?)

Weird. I like UPS's tracking system *way* better.
