Within Canada, shipping starts around $10 for regular parcel post. Express post (1-2 business days guaranteed) costs $12-13, and we don't have weekend delivery either.

You folks in the US have it quite well off

Rather have USPS survive then our postal service be taken over by ups, and FedEx. I hope USPS gets sorted out soon.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Just a reminder that all political, religious and highly sensitive posts will be removed without question. Those are our forum guidelines and you agree to follow them when you become a member.

Keep personal political opinions out of the discussion, folks. Serves only to upset people and cause flame wars.
