Canada Post Update

USPS News Release: The U.S. Postal Service will resume accepting mail for Canada starting Tuesday, June 28, as a result of legislation passed yesterday by the Canadian government requiring Canada Post employees to return to work tonight.

Mail that was held in the U.S. Postal Service network since the work stoppage began is being released today and transported to Canada in stages. Customers will experience some delays in service due to the large volume of mail that was being held. The U.S. Postal Service is working closely with Canada Post to keep these delays to a minimum and return service levels back to normal for all products as quickly as possible.

Thank goodness the strike is over. I just hope they are able to get the backed up mail delivered soon!
