4. It's 72 cents for a letter to Canada.
You can look up postal rates on the post office web site.

5. 42 cents, don't listen to the other ill-informed twits in this thread
They're just trying to con you into giving more of your hard-earned cash to the postal service

6. Checking the proper place to check these questions - the postal website - 72 cents
Used to be you could mail to Canada for the same price as in the US. Apparently that changed.

Now you have to international 72 cent rate, which is still cheaper than regular international rate of 94 cents
