Canada Post needs to act on mail concerns

The Village of Gadsby council has a dilemma: Concerns have been coming in regarding the safety of getting the mail at the super boxes.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS

The Village of Gadsby council has a dilemma: Concerns have been coming in regarding the safety of getting the mail at the super boxes. First it was the snow and ice, now the water run-off. Next will be summer rains. Unfortunately this is not up to the town, but rather Canada Post. The council has spoken to Canada Post about these concerns and they were advised that they have not received any calls from the citizens themselves. It is up to Canada Post to make sure these mailboxes are free and clear of snow, ice and water as this is government property. Canada Post urges citizens to please call Canada Post in Edmonton at 1 800 267 1177.
