WASHINGTON >> The U.S. Postal Service is again accepting mail for Canada, starting Tuesday.
The post office stopped accepting most mail bound for Canada on June 18 because of labor problems in that country. The Canadian government has passed legislation requiring Canada Post employees to return to work.
The post office said today that mail held by the U.S. Postal Service since the work stoppage began is being released and transported to Canada in stages. There will be some delays in service due to the large volume of mail that was being held.
