No more snail mail

On Jan. 17 we encountered one of our neighbours at our Fleetwood “super mailbox” (should be stupid mailbox).  She asked if we had received any mail this past week as she had not – nor had we. We had similar conversations with other neighbours.

As luck would have it a postal truck was just driving by and we flagged him down.

This is when we were advised that our boxes had been compromised and that our mail was being held. He provided us with a phone number where we were to pick up our mail.

If we had not encountered this postal worker, no one in our neighbourhood would have even know this had happened.

One would think that supervisors in Canada Post would have the good sense to at least place a notice on our boxes letting us know of the compromise and where we could pick up our mail.

Canada Post just lost this customer. We will be changing to e-billing for everything. No wonder they are in the red.
