Yesterday I sent a letter through regular mail from Ottawa to Hong Kong, but then found out Canada Post had gone on a strike..... (i know.. consequences of not paying attention to the news....) So I'm wondering does it mean my letter isn't going to be delivered to HK until the strike is over?
thanks
sigh*.......i really want to kill myself now ....

@hyc,
the strikes are rotating, mail is still being delivered, it might be slower but it will get delivered

@hyc,
okay, so now canada post has stopped accepting new mail, but are they going to clear mail that were accepted before that? i sent my letter last friday to Hong Kong. do you think it will still get delivered or it's pretty much stuck somewhere in the system? should i send another one by fedex? it's a university application.. quite important...

@hyc,

@hyc,
Did you keep a copy of what you sent? If so, you could send it via Fed Ex or UPS as a workaround for the Canadian postal system and be assured your application reaches the destination.

Worst that can happen is they'll get two copies. You can always slip a note in the second one explaining why you sent the second one.

@Butrflynet,
He could also fax it or scan and email it. Many options.
