Re: UPS SUCKS!!!*2 for Cdn list members

Greetings all;

 I agree with Jon here , in addition UPS delay every piece for 7 working
before it shows up in to your town. As there is no tarrif or tax to be
"brokered" since the  free trade agreement I think the whole setup reeks
of olde time 
foreign country process. I advise all Canadians to avoid UPS . Drive,
trek, dogsled or use another vendor including the Postal Service to get
service.                                      ( I'm feeling much better

Thank you for your time....
