We have been following the news and currently Canada Post will not be having a lockout. Canada Post and the union are still negotiating, but for the time being shipping is as per usual.
So, we have updated our North American shipping estimates back to Canada Post economical pricing. Should the negotiations fall through, we will notify customers on a per order basis regarding shipping. We found our best choice for alternate shipping is FedEx, for its fast and reliable service. If a lockout happens, we will adjust shipping costs accordingly.
*** UPDATE September 8, 2016 ***
Canada Post and the union have come to a 2 year agreement and business is as usual.
Thank you for your patience!
