A note from Warrior Publications regarding t-shirt sales through our website
As some readers may be aware, there is likely to be a labour dispute between the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) and Canada Post beginning as early as July 2, 2016. In the event of a strike or lock out it will not be possible to mail our t-shirts (private couriers are too expensive). So if you proceed to order a shirt it is uncertain how long mail delivery will be delayed. If a shirt is ordered we will ship it as soon as the labour dispute ends, or you can simply wait to place your order until after mail delivery resumes.
