    Okay, so a few weeks ago I've ordered a bunch of Reprolabels for my WST collection. This was about the same time the Canadian Postal Strike started.
    When oh when will I ever see my order arrive in the mail box? Aren't those Canadian postal-workers back yet?

    It ended last week (Gov't intervention) but they're still backed up somewhat.

    I'm waiting on some packages too from Canada... I envision a scene like in Wall-E where there are just boxes piled into the sky and one little dude trying to make heads or tails of them :)

    Yes, they have a lot of mail to sort through, but they're back.

    Yup, up and running last week but likely backed up. I'm still patiently waiting for several things to come in from the U.S. I purchased almost a month ago.

    Btw your thread title reminded me of something else.

    Well if my luck's any indication, they should be getting to you soon. For example, I received a package that was sent before the strikes (aka something that was being held hostage), and then a friend of mine received shit that I sent after the lockout had ended (aka, something that should've had to wait for the backlog to clear before).

    The latter of which actually took less time than expected, so here's to your shit following suit. Mind you, most of the backlog is/was probably in major cities that my stuff might have been able to avoid, but you know.

    Yeah. It should take about a week. We've been getting small amounts of mail for 2 days straight at our house.

    Knowing the slow ass Canada Post, I'm pretty sure that is EXACTLY how they do things.

    Anything you were hoping to get, tack on an extra week.
