Canada Post Strike

We have just received the following message from Canada Post:

"This letter is to inform you that the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has provided Canada Post with 72-hour strike notices. This means the union will be in a legal position to commence strike action on August 28, 2016. Following that, they will be free to take further action to disrupt the postal service at any time without additional warning."

In light of these new developments, we will be postponing all shipments until we feel it is safe to ship without risk of the animals being caught in transit during a Canada Post work disruption. Anyone with pending orders will be kept up to date on the status of their order, but feel free to contact us at any time for updates.

401 Drop-Offs

Amanda will be available to make drop offs on her route (along the 401) from Montreal to Toronto on Saturday June 25. Anyone interested should contact us no later than Thursday June 23 with their orders.

Please note that any species with potentially life threatening venom will NOT be available for purchase at the expo (this includes, but is not limited to , Latrodectus (widows) and Buthidae scorpions). However, anyone wishing to purchase these can make arrangements with Amanda to have animals delivered on her route on Friday Sept 9.


UPDATE: Canada Post says no work disruptions

We just received the following message from Canada Post: "Canada Post has withdrawn its 72-hour notice, which was to take effect Monday, July 11. As a result, there will be no lockout. We also expect the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) to honour what it has said publicly on many occasions that they wish to negotiate and have no plans to issue a strike notice. We therefore expect mail service to continue without interruption, and we feel you can ship with us with confidence."

Since there is no pending threat of a work disruption (either by strike or lockout) we will resume shipping as normal this week. We will continue to watch the negotiations and act accordingly if it looks like a work disruption is a possibility.
