I have a package stuck in limbo too. I called Canada Customs and they informed me that this message DOES NOT mean that CBSA HAS the package. It means that Canada Post will EVENTUALLY give them the package.
Apparently, CBSA has been trying for years to get Canada Post to change this message to something more clear.
Your package, and mine, has not been seized by CBSA, they haven't even SEEN it yet!
May the force be with all of us...

And that is from July 7th 2009. I'm not freaking out yet, but I just don't see why this is happening if it's not illegal. I've never had them hold anything like this before so I am getting concerned.
