Canadian emails will come to a complete halt if a looming strike becomes a reality. The internet consortium said a strike will not affect international emails and warned against email scabs.

From the Vatican Enquirer – Direct from a page of Canada’s postal strikes, the Canadian internet consortium announced a pending e-mail strike.

Internet users across the country have been warned not to send any emails once the strike begins, as email servers around the country will either shut down completely or operate at a snail mails pace.

Negotiations are underway to avoid the strike, but sources close to the Vatican Enquirer (VE) said they sides are too far apart and a strike is inevitable.

Results of online polls are in favour of a strike, 99% of the respondents say they support the movement.

It is unclear why the strike is being called or its objective. “It’s a Canadian thing”, posted a user on the social media. Another said, “it’s aboot time, eh!”.

Experts are recommending to send all your emails before the strike, and even suggesting counseling if the strike runs into hours (like eons in Internet time).

“With this clear mandate our members have demonstrated they are in full support of their bargaining committees, and our direction in this set of negotiations,” said the head of the Canadian email strike committee, ironically through an official email.

The internet union has warned against e-mail scabs.

The Internet Consortium made it clear the strike will only affect Canadian emails,  international emails in will continue to flow in and out mailboxes on computers across the country.
