    Just wanted to speak up and advocate for Canada Post, it’s not a perfect service but I have rarely seen a postal worker in recent memory that wasn’t busting their ass to get #### done. Postal workers have been put through the wringer this year and I think we could maybe be a little more empathetic about it.

    That said, I have had a package marked as “Item delayed - Stay tuned for updates.” for the last 9 days now. So that isn’t all that swell.

    Couriers are a great option if you need something ASAP and I wish more retailers had those options available, hopefully in the future.

    Big Thanks to any and all postal workers who see this.

    I don't want to have to deal with Canada Post ever again.
    We currently only offer Canada Post to ship by at this time and that is what would be used whether it is the free holiday shipping or not.

    As stated above, lots of butt-breaking workers but are they trying to catch up the lag of a broken system? If bezos ever put in a bid to deliver nationally, CP would be in hot water methinks.
    Just received a pair of aics 223 mags i ordered 2 weeks ago, which couldve been sooner but tolerable to me.

    Big thanks to Dustin for helping me out with parts advice as well. My LSS will be up and running in short order.
