If you declare a high value it is more likely to get searched though....lol. I send so much stuff to Canada the post office there probabaly knows my name and address by heart. The highest $$$ Item I've sent to Canada was my Nicklas Backstrom Quad Jsy/Patch #/15. I sold it for $325 and I declared that value on the customs form.

I don't think the customs people pay attention or realize how much the package is actually insured for. I think there more concerned with finding other things coming in the mail!!

But if they happen to notice that the declared value is $50 and it is insured for $1000, don't you think that they would rifle it open without question.

Canada post has nothing to do with the USPS. They simply deliver it and do what is called for to get it delivered. They would not be able to know what the amount it was insured for. The sender has the receipt for the insurance and would be the person who would make a claim if something happened to the package.

Well, then I guess he's the man to listen too. Oddly enough, the guy who wants the card is a postal carrier himself. Kind of odd he doesn't know a better way around this.
