My Nov 28 Amazon gift order via Canada Post was supposed to be here on the 7th and now may arrive “as early as the 18th”.

If you order online from LL Bean in the USA the parcel comes by UPS in 5 business days, whereas if you order from LL Bean in Canada it comes by Canada Post, which after 3 weeks we are still waiting.

A package sent via Purolator on Nov. 30 from Toronto expected in Victoria 3-5 business days - today, Dec. 12 and no package. 

Purolator says they have 'high volume' - should've had it sent via Canada Post. 

You do know that Canada Post owns Purolator?

Most of it. But, different delivery networks and labour groups.

I mean Purolator is owned by Canada Post (or at least 91% of it is)

Package from Amazon was originally estimated at Dec 18th, then Dec 24th, now currently Dec 27th.  The tracking is littered with "Delivery may be delayed due to labour disruption" entries.  It may indeed.

Except for the West Coast

 

The restoration of delivery service guarantees by Canada Post — three weeks after striking postal workers were forced back to work — proves the shipment backlogs Ottawa used to justify legislating an end to rotating walkouts were "fiction," says the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.

The Crown agency announced Tuesday it had caught up on most parcel delivery backlogs that had been created by the sporadic labour disruptions that began Oct. 22.

As a result, the corporation said its normal holiday service commitments were being restored across most of Canada, except the West Coast.

"With continued progress, we are now in a position to restore our normal holiday delivery service guarantees for much of the country," Canada Post said in a statement.

"This means Canadians can expect normal holiday delivery timelines for parcels. The exception remains items headed to or departing Vancouver as backlogs there continue to cause additional delays."
