Canada Post Stops Rural Routes

"Why can't people just come here to get their mail?"

The Harpoville Post reports that Canada Post has decided to stop delivering mail to some east coast rural homes. The reason? They're too rural. Homes that have been getting mail for more than 100 years will be cut from the new streamlined Canada Post and those affected are up in arms over it. "We'd write a letter to our member of Parliament but, we know Canada Post won't deliver it," said one outraged former Canada Post customer.

The Harpoville Post has learned that rural mail delivery drivers are sighting 'repetitive stress syndrome' as the reason and they've gone to their union to have these dangerous potential death traps cut from their route. The Canada Post mail delivery employees are paid to drive rural roads, going from mail box to mail box, putting cards and letters into the mail boxes while sitting in they're cars, a job they say is now too dangerous and the union agrees. Canada Post has contacted, by letter, informing the rural owners, of this potential death traps, that they're mail's in town so, come and get it. This, to no suprise, has outraged the rural affected.

The Harpoville Post spoke to one such rurally affected fromer Canada Post customer who told us, "First off I don't want my name in the paper, Canada Post knows where I live and they can be mean. I can't believe that in the year 2006 a time when new technology makes this world run faster and supposedly smoother Canada Post decides that it's too much bother to do what they were mandated to do and decide the postal employees who were hired to do a simple task can't do it because it might hurt them. What a load of shit. I called Canada Post to complain and they told me they don't take complaints over the phone. They said I could either write a letter, which I know they won't deliver or email them. I wish someone would remind me why we have a mail service anyway."
