    Default Canada Post to Stop Home Mail Delivery



    What does this mean for the Sault? What does this mean for Canada Post? Jobs obviously will be lost. Millions will be saved. Our deficit will go down. Your thoughts?

    There will be layoffs in the mailbox manufacturing sector.

    Unemployed mail carriers will gain weight.

    Dogs will be traumatized.

    Canada Post faces a 1 billion dollar deficit next year. This is mainly due to their obligation to make the pension plan solvent. Within 5 years, everyone will have to go to a super mailbox to get their mail. Parcel delivery will still be door to door. The price of a stamp will be going up to $0.85. There is a projected job loss of 8,000 jobs, mostly made up through attrition. I prediced this years ago, .... one of the reasons I retired, .... get out while the pension obligation is there. Sucks to be working there now.

    Will be interesting for things like drivers licenses, ohip cards and all that good government mail that cannot be performed by electronic mail.
    I wonder how that is going to work out.

    It's not so difficult to comprehend as it is different from reality.
    I don't take a stroll down to my mailbox. I open the door and grab my mail.

    I don't feel like driving down to some place to check my mail, especially not in weather like today.

    Why should I? Canada post is supposed to deliver mail, instead they want us to go pick up our own at some box somewhere. Why should we stand for that kind of poor service?

    canada post has been doing super mailboxes for years in many areas of the city. a couple of us that are spoiled enough to get mail to our door and complaining won't change the outcome. i feel bad for letter carriers losing their job. and i do like canada post. i sold as well as bought on ebay. canada post has alway been the cheapest and reliable for package delivery.

    I hope they have large garbage bins by these pick up boxes because 95% of home mail is straight to trash junk mail.

    As for the people with disabilities angle. Well they must eat right? I don't think Grocery stores deliver food to you door as well.
    Who every they have picking up their food order just has one extra stop to pick up or check their mail now.

    Just a thought.
    I wonder if I did not check my mail for a month or more how much junk mail these pickup spots are willing to store for me before they freak out. LOL
