Snow delays local mail deliveries

Snowed in mailboxes cause frustration

Many locals took to the community Facebook page to express frustrations with mail delivery over the last week, with some claiming they haven’t received mail since Dec. 16.

The local postmaster says Canada Post is responsible for clearing boxes and she has contacted them to be cleared as soon as possible.

Canada Post media relations coordinator Phil Legault said in an email that the recent ice and snow storm prevented delivery agents from reaching boxes on Dec.29-30.

“On Tuesday all the mail went out but there were a few community mailbox sites that were not accessible,” he said. “Full mail delivery to all the community mailbox sites has returned to normal today. Our local operations team has been monitoring the snow clearing closely and directing the snow plow crews where needed.”
