Especially lately, it makes very little sense. These are my experiences, all using Canada Post. 1) Australia to me ; 2 weeks. 2) From me to NYC ; 1 week. 3) From me to Buffalo ; 3 weeks and counting. 4) From an office 15-min away from me ; 3 weeks. This is just in the last month. For the 2 instances where I shipped something out, it was using the same carrier and service. What are your experiences, lately?
