Ugh. Amazon.ca is still shipping via Canada Post to Canada.
On the Amazon website now it says it is shipping by Canada Post and it has left the seller facility in Breinigsville, PA US, due for delivery on the 26th.
So, how does that work? It's coming from the US despite being an Amazon.ca order shipping with Canada Post. With all those rotating strikes, should I actually expect to get those shoes next week in Toronto?
This is what it says on Canada Post's website:
We will continue to make best efforts to deliver, but the union’s strike efforts have caused significant backlogs and delays throughout our network. As of today, our major processing centre in Vancouver was shut down from Friday evening to Tuesday morning and Toronto is now shut down, significantly impacting our ability to process mail and parcels. In Toronto alone, more than 180 trailers full of parcels, packets and mail sit idle as the union shuts down the facility for a third time in less than a month. Striking to shut down a processing facility not only impacts our operations at that location, it chokes the flow of mail and parcels to our delivery facilities.
BTW, I ordered the same shoes but the women's version for my wife, and it is showing as being delivered by Amazon in 2 days, on Nov. 21.
