Canada Post Disruption Alert

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 8/26/2016 to General

Canada Post may be shutting down as of July 2nd due to a labour dispute. See their website for the latest information.

Because of this, we have been forced to seek alternate shipping options which have resulted in a much higher shipping rate.

For that reason, we have left the Canada Post "XpressPost - Flat Rate (Canada)" and "COD Orders Flat Rate" for Canada and "US Track-a-Packet - Flat Rate (United States)" options available at the normal rates. However, if you choose one of those shipping options and Canada Post does shut down, your orders will not be shipped until they return to operations.

The alternate shipping option that we have available is Purolator, which we can offer a flat rate shipping charge of $30.00 (this is well below our cost). If you do not wish to chance a delay in your shipment, you should select this option.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hopefully the labour dispute is resolved without interruption in services.

#UPDATE# Aug. 26, 2016

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has provided Canada Post with 72-hour strike notices. The union will be in a legal position to commence strike action on August 28, 2016.

This does not mean that they "WILL" strike but since no agreement has been reached, and a full work disruption is possible.

If there is a disruption, any mail or parcels that are within Canada Post's system at the time of the disruption will be secured and delivered once operations resume.

Meanwhile, talks continue with Canada Post and they will appoint a special mediator to assist in negotiations with CUPW in hopes that that the assistance of a neutral third party will help both parties address their challenges. See their website for the latest information. We will continue to stay on top of the progress and will update our customers as we learn more.

The Canada Post "XpressPost - Flat Rate (Canada)" for Canada and "US Track-a-Packet - Flat Rate (United States)" options will remain available at the normal rates. However, we have temporarily disabled the "COD Orders Flat Rate" option until the threat subsides.

As a backup, we have enabled an alternate shipping option that we have available is Purolator, which we can offer a flat rate shipping charge of $30.00 (this are well below our cost). If you do not wish to chance a delay in your shipment, you should select this option.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hopefully the labour dispute is resolved without interruption in services.

Ontario Bill 45, Sch 3 Pending Regulations

Posted by The VapeMate Team on 12/2/2015 to General
URGENT - Call to Action

Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have quit smoking in the last few years with the aid of Electronic vaporizers. The government of Ontario has passed Bill 45 (Royal Assent on May 28, 2015) that effectively classifies these devices as a tobacco product. Vaping is NOT smoking. There is no smoke nor tobacco in a vape and the science is quickly catching up with the technology.

On January 1st regulations go into effect in Ontario that will harm the success of those wishing to make the switch from smoking to vaping. Retailers will no longer be allowed to have their customers test the products in store, which is essential to the success of each person quitting smoking. Vape retailers agree that the vaping industry needs regulations. They however believe that the regulations need to be based on fact and research and not hidden agendas. The Government of Ontario says that they want a smoke free Ontario but they have granted exemptions for big tobacco.

There will be a Rally held at Queen's Park on December 5th, 2015. PLEASE! We NEED your help!

We're Getting Screwed

WE ARE GETTING SCREWED

You read it right. Vapers in Ontario are definitely getting screwed by our Liberal Government.

Let's review Bill 45, Schedule 3 (Electronic Cigarette Act 2015) [click here]
And the "New and Improved" Pending Regulations [click here]

We have been repeatedly lied to and I think we need to take a very real, hard second look a video that was done back in December 2014 (shortly after Bill 45 was first introduced). It depicts how the framework of Bill 45 reads (in the absence of regulations).

The Ontario Liberal Government needs to be called out on the floor, publicly in parliament.
