Unfortunately here in Hamilton, Canada Post is doing the exact opposite. Instead of working with the municipality to find safe and convenient locations for these boxes by going through our newly developed permit process, we have mailboxes being installed in the drip lines of trees, at busy corners, and entrances to sub divisions. Boxes are even being installed in one instance inside a resident’s new driveway.
These actions show that Canada Post is clearly not obeying our local rules and regulations and as such I’ve sent a letter to the Minister asking her to direct Canada Post to do just that.
