If the strike should happen, through-the-mail autograph collecting will also come to a temporary halt for Canadian collectors as well. As a hardcore Canadian TTM Autograph collector myself, I can only hope that the two sides come to an agreement that benefits both. With many pending TTM's out there, I can honestly tell you that I have no problems waiting until the labor dispute is resolved.
I am very optimistic that the two sides will come to an agreement before the July 7th deadline. As I read on one blog, this could be "disastrous" for Canadian small businesses. My thoughts are with these business owners who have mortgages, bills, children, food, and expenses to worry about.
Many of you who are wanting to send to Canadian addresses, I would keep a close eye on what will happen within the next few days before sending. I would also caution anyone who is dealing with eBay sellers in Canada to make sure that they have an alternate method of shipping other than Canada Post. Here's to hoping that they get a deal done soon!
