OT­TAWA - Three weeks after strik­ing postal work­ers were forced back to work, Canada Post says it’s caught up on most par­cel de­liv­ery back­logs that had been cre­ated by ro­tat­ing walk­outs. The Crown cor­po­ra­tion says its nor­mal hol­i­day de­liv­ery ser­vice guar­an­tees have been re­stored across most of the coun­try, ex­cept Van­cou­ver. The fed­eral govern­ment leg­is­lated an end to job ac­tion by postal work­ers on Nov. 27 after Canada Post com­plained that a back­log of parcels was reach­ing his­toric lev­els ahead of the cru­cial hol­i­day shop­ping pe­riod. At the time, Canada Post warned the back­log could take un­til the end of Jan­uary to clear up.Canada Post said it de­liv­ered about four mil­lion pack­ages between last Fri­day and yes­ter­day, and will likely be able to de­liver items or­dered on­line in time for Christ­mas. But it also de­pends on where the parcels are com­ing from as Canada Post ex­pects some ship­ments from out­side Canada might only be de­liv­ered in early Jan­uary.
