Postal Shutdown in Canada

After a few days of a rotating postal strike in Canada, Canada Post shut the whole system down. I'm not taking sides on any of the issues in the dispute, but would like to make a plea on behalf of small businesses in this country that depend on postal services. Basically all our styluses are shipped out with Canada Post. Private shipping companies charge as much as three times the postal rates, so it's not an option.

In the meantime we had planned a vacation shutdown starting June 22  -- so all our shipping process would have been shut down anyway until July 8th. As of today, there is a government back-to-work order being debated in our federal Parliament. To be optimistic,  the postal dispute should be resolved before we return to fill the orders on our waiting list.

Our apologies to those of you who are patiently waiting for an oStylus.
