Toronto Star's View: Canada Post's secrecy undermines trust
From: Larry Kazdan
Subject: Re:  Mulcair�s postal vow would cost $250 million a year to keep snail mail alive, Kelly McParland | May 26, 2015

According to Kelly McParland, home delivery costs $283 per address whereas delivery to a centralized �superbox� costs only $108.  Presumably these figures were conveniently provided by Canada Post. But what about the cost to municipalities for administration, street lighting, sidewalks, and damage to cables, sprinkler systems, and trees? And what about the cost to Canadians in loss of privacy, inconvenience and potential accidents? 

Terminating home delivery is not common sense. Other countries continue to provide this important service. Common sense dictates not imposing superboxes in built-up urban areas where they have no place. 

Larry Kazdan,
Vancouver, B.C.

Court case finds flaws in Canada Post�s plan to end home delivery for urban addresses, TU THANH HA, May. 25 2015

Poor street lighting. Sidewalk and safety issues. Concerns for trees and people�s privacy. Damaged cables and sprinkler systems.

These are some of the issues that have emerged as Canada Post prepares to set up thousands of new community mailboxes in Hamilton, the city alleges in its court dispute against the mail service.
