Canada Post will be phasing out door to door mail delivery. Will this effect you or do you already receive your mail at a community mailbox? I feel bad for older people or people with disablilites who will have to go out to pick up their mail.

ARGH!! Where I live there are quite a few of elderly. The houses are spread out a fair distance so, those elderly people and people with disabilities will have to go a fair distance to a community box.


I hated having a community mailbox when I lived in a sub division.

I don't mind my community mailbox at all. It's a hard transition for some maybe, and while I do feel for the elderly, many of them (my grandmother included) already have community mailboxes. It's not like they have been getting special treatment because of age or ability. Of course, job loss really sucks.
