    Slow Mail Delivery from Eastern Canada?

    Hey all, was chatting with @notoriousrob101 last night about this and it seems we've both had some issues with Canada Post (shocker!) of late.

    I've got two deals with folks from Eastern Canada that are around a month in now, and still haven't received cards. One is from a super-reputable person whose integrity is definite, so I know the card has been shipped from her.

    I also had a deal recently completed similar situation that it took a month to arrive, again from a very reputable person.

    Anybody else in Western Canada experiencing slow delivery on deals that should really only be taking a week to close?

    Being from Nova Scotia myself, I found alot of people used to get upset with things I'd mail out and yes, they'd take awhile to arrive, it was kinda painful with Ebay, I'd get slagged on feedback for delivery times even though I'd have tracking numbers to prove when I mailed and where things were at all times.....I contacted Ebay about it but I might as well ran my head into a wall. They did nothing, irritating really.....I will say I have enjoyed how fast the USPS moves stuff along......will be painful to return to slow wagontrain mail....lol

    I have always experienced some sort of lag when shipping to anywhere east of Quebec. It is the same thing for receiving now that I have moved back here, whether it is SCF, eBay, Amazon, regular mail, always a delay. I've always figured it is the sorting facilties in Quebec where it gets tied up. I had one package with tracking get held up there for almost 5 full days, and it was scanned 8 or nine times after it entered the facility and before it was scanned as departed.

    Being from Nova Scotia, I have found lately that mail has been going out quicker lately... though it has to go through the local PO, than the regional PO than to Halifax... which is 2-3 days before it even leaves the province...

    Pretty brutal. I got a message from the guy I dealt with three weeks back. He got his card within a week of our deal being made on May 8th. Me, I got nothin'.

    Not from eastern Canada, it's from the US, but I ordered something over a month ago and it still hasn't arrived. Hopefully soon.
