File this one under weird and unfortunate: LensRentals Canada has suspended operations due to problems with Canada Post Corporation, the principal mail delivery company in Canada. Though it's not explained on the emergency "there is a problem" text-only version of the website, this kind of sounds like Canada Post Corporation is losing LensRentals product.
We first caught wind of this via Reddit, and the main website for LensRentals Canada is pretty damning of Canad Post, who is being accused of on Reddit of stealing the product. Below is a quote from a Redditor who says he received a response from LensRentals Canada as to why product shipping is being halted:
We are currently halting all shipments with Canada Post as someone at the depot in Mississauga is stealing our boxes.
Below is taken directly from the LensRentals Canada website today, July 30 2014:
Due to serious issues with the Canada Post Corporation, we are currently not taking any new orders. We do not have an ETA as to when we will be accepting new orders.
Current reservations will be shipped via Purolator Courier. While Purolator is majority owned by Canada Post, it does not share any aspects of the delivery network such as depots or post offices. We have the utmost confidence in Purolator Courier.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at 1.888.599.2271
Thank-you for your understanding.
