Well we have our mail back... First 'mail' was delivered last tuesday... Today I got a letter that was mailed in Eastport Maine.... It was mailed June 20... As the crow flies Eastport is 8 miles (12 km) That letter moved less than .4 miles a day... I'm sure the crow could have got it here in 2 days!
Today I sent my mother a birthday present... bubble wrap envelope (approx 10 in * 10 in * 1 in) cost me $17.00 Express Post 3 day delivery... However since Canada Post is still backlogged by the strike they are not guaranteeing the 3 day delivery... They had no problem taking my money for the service but it may still take the 10 days that normal parcel mail would.... !
