from www.sunnewsnetwork.ca- An advertisement featuring full-frontal nudity slipped through the cracks at Canada Post and landed in the mailboxes of numerous Halifax residents.
The front of the ad features porn star Bree Olson, scantily clad with the words, “An exclusive invite from Bree.”
Once the unsealed pamphlet is unfolded, there is a nude Olson accompanied by explicit text advertising numerous sexual products.
Canada Post admits the ad was sent out by mistake, spokesman Jon Hamilton said Wednesday.
When the addressed pamphlets arrived at Canada Post for distribution, workers didn’t meet the requirements and prepare them as non-mailable, Hamilton said. “If anyone is looking to send anything of an explicit or sexual nature, it should be in an opaque envelope and should be labelled ‘Contains adult materials,'” he said.
Although Canada Post stopped most of the pamphlets from ending up in the mail, Hamilton said some did get distributed in Halifax, but he doesn’t know how many.
“We intercepted about 95%, but that’s a guess at this point,” he said.
“Whole pallets didn’t get sent out, but we do know some were delivered. We’ve received some complaints.”
Canada Post is investigating how some of the pamphlets were missed in the screening process, he said.
He said the number that went in the mail is still being investigated.
He wouldn’t say how many complaints Canada Post received.
“We apologized to anyone who received this mailing. We regret we were not able to catch it all,” he said.
There wasn’t information about how widely the pamphlets were to be mailed out, but Hamilton said the items were addressed for delivery, and were not flyers meant for overall distribution.
While the porn star featured in the ad didn’t apologize, she did tweet about it. “CANADA! This mailing system is not my doing. Adam & Eve is the company that sends it out. Those pictures are SO OLD,” Olson posted.
On its website, Adam & Eve bills itself as “America’s most trusted source for sex toys.”
Canada Post has told the company its mailout didn’t follow regulations.
“We’re not the ethical police,” Hamilton said. “We’re in the delivery business. This one clearly didn’t meet the standards we’ve had in place for a long time.” Several Halifax residents who received the pamphlet told CTV Atlantic the items should have been in an envelope.
