To help answer the many requests we are getting from shippers across Canada, mostly from Edmonton.   Edmonton shippers have been affected by the Canada Post work action.   Work stoppages have increased the need for alternatives particularly for shipping from Edmonton.

Canada Post says there is no indication when that strike will end, adding it will worsen backlogs in mail or parcel deliveries across the country.   Canada Post also suspended delivery-time guarantees.
