The fiasco could have been avoided if all involved parties actually knew what they were doing and what their job is.

Shipping an aerosol spray can is ten times more dangerous than shipping ammo (though still not very dangerous in general), and I’m sure that happens at least as much as people who ship ammo, probably even more in Canada given the tighter gun regulations. My guess is that they do not call out the bomb squad for hair spray shipments which run afoul of the postal regulations.
