Strong Canadian dollar choking postal system

Canada Post is swamped by mail flowing across the border as Canadians try to make the best of a strong Canadian dollar while it lasts. According to the Globe and Mail, "Officials say the volume of parcels has choked three main international mail-sorting centres operated by Canada Post and the Canada Border Service agency in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal." With all of the reported delays and the holiday shopping season just heating up, the post office is advising, that Canadians who intend upon placing Internet orders, buy early and expect delays. It's a great time to be heading south!
