31 days and the only tracking info is that it has left Canada. legitimately crying over this
It's probably fine, maybe got sidelined by customs or something. I've noticed in the past few months that Canada Post tracking has gotten a bit sketchy, so hang in there and try not to worry.

That’s not good Zoe...not good at all.

Hopefully it’s got stuck in customs and will turn up before too long.

We have found since the crisis started the postal service which we get regularly from a round the world has been quite slow for a while.One item we thought was lost turned up after 2 months from china.And one or two parcels we have sent from spain have been returned and no money back.

Stuff from China is always really slow. Not that we're buying anything from there anymore...

It could well still be in Canada due to the reduced number of flights due to Covid.

I posted cards to the UK in late July, that were stuck in Australia until end of August. Once they got on a plane they were delivered within 7 days. Whole process was about 6 weeks, so they were still late as I allowed a month

Keeping my that that is the case with your paintings

I ordered a gift card from my air miles credit card, it was mailed on the 28th Sept and I haven’t received it. I called them yesterday and they said to allow another 2 weeks. As CP is very slow at present they said to allow 6 weeks before reporting it missing.

I have just found out that Merriam Webster has made 'irregardless' a word.

I'm hoping that the definition they provide is "with regard" or there'll be trouble
