Got the package yesterday. Faster than the last 2 from Toronto when they weren't striking.

I agree, its you just dont know where is going to be hit next. I got a package out for delivery today but it was put on hold. However my wife got her package today. So I am not sure whats going on and the post office wouldnt tell me much either.

I much rather a rotating strike vs. a full strike.

I honestly don't notice a difference other than:
- seeing brown UPS trucks driving around faster than before
- seeing WAY less junk mail in the mailbox...it's an actual noticeable amount less in the recycle bin

I have one item that's shipping from MTL...and the tracking hasn't been updated since Monday/Tuesday. That said...it's really no different than any other time. I DO hope that the sender reclaims his shipping charge though if that's possible.

All that said...I do not depend on the physical processing of mail/packages by CanPost for my business/livelyhood. Truth be told...I don't even rely on it for my hobbies. I know there are businesses that are hurting from this strike. I know some end customers have felt the impact in the wallet for other shipping methods that had to be done. I know some got the jump on the heads up and had alternate plans formulated.

The only lesson that I take away from this is to:
- identify the points of dependancy and have alternatives prepared (or at least thought out)
- life/business goes on...your customers aren't going to wait, you business isn't going to wait, etc...
- if you fail to deliver (haha...) everyone needing your services will go elsewhere. It might be painful...but it will happen. And when the dust settles...unless you're coming back in with something so aggressive (either service or price), why would anyone switch back?

im pretty sure theres something about they dont refund money for late deliveries when theres a strike. its stated somewhere.

Personally, I felt Canada post always gets in the way of my gear addiction, even before the strike. I ordered a package from Russia, it was exported from there in 3 days, according to Russian post (although apparently backpack + water bottle = 1,536 Kg :lol: ) After arriving in Canada it DISAPEARED since they don't track "small" packets. 4 weeks late (was supposed to be here before the strike) going on 5, but I can't track it since THEY DON'T TRACK SMALL PACKAGES! :banghead:
