FYI, Canada Post is officially doing what they call a rolling strike. Right now, Winnipeg Postal Workers are off the job for 24 hours. After 24 hours, more cities will go for a period of 24 hours, and so on and so forth.
DHL has released the following:
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has announced that they will start strike activities at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Thursday, June 2, 2011. A news release from the CUPW said the strike will begin in Winnipeg for 24 hours, after which it will continue in other locations to be announced later. Due to the nature of the rolling strike format, DHL Global Mail will pick-up and process mail and parcels to Canada as normal, however delays are to be expected as a result of the work disruptions in Canada. Canada Post has not released a statement as to how they will handle mail in those areas affected by the strike, and possible backlogs in processing. DHL Global Mail is working to review alternate solutions in the event the strike continues for a prolonged amount of time. We will continue to monitor events surrounding the strike and ongoing negotiations between Canada Post and the CUPW, and provide updates as they develop.
So for any of my fellow Canadians who ordered Criterions from Amazon.com, your stuff will hopefully show up eventually. That wasn't quite grammatically sound, but there's really no other way to put it. It sucks, to put it bluntly. At least Amazon sent me Monterey Pop via UPS, and it's going to show up at my mom's place today while I'm at work. I'll get it when I go home for a weekend visit. So disappointed that my order of The Secret of Kells, Bigger than Life, and Au Revoir Les Enfants has been delayed even further.
My b-day is August 18, 1985 to add to that train of though.
