Our dollar has gone to crap and there is a postal strike. There need to be another option for Canada this year for shipping.

You don't want another option for shipping. Courier companies charge an excessive amount for customs brokerage as compared to Canada Post.

Edit:
And they do a better job, meaning, while sometimes you don't have to pay anything, you can guarantee these for-profit courier companies will not only ensure they process the duties you have to pay, but will also charge you for having to do it. So, add on another $30-40 into every shipment.

Stop sending mail and parcels, Canada Post asks foreign services.
Labour dispute causes 30-day backlog as 600 tractor-trailers sit unloaded.

"As a result, we have been forced to request that international posts, including the United States Postal Service, refrain from shipping items until we can clear the backlog."

The government's job is to deliver the mail and plow snow...that's about it, so there's no reason there isn't enough money unless they're doing things other than that.
