Again this evening, I went to our complex clubhouse to only find a notice on the door that another break-in was attempted and our mailboxes (which are housed inside) were compromised. This happens every other month now… for the last 11 years.
We are at the mercy of thieves because they know that the mailboxes Canada Post provides are flimsy and easy targets.
We as member of the Complex have done our part time and time again with replacing alarm systems, entry systems, video surveillance systems and even replaced the boxes at our cost. But it has all been to in vain.
The continued thefts of our mail goes on.
It bugs me to no-end that the CEO of Canada Post lives a posh live style, on the backs of Canadian, without a care in his world as the rest of the country grapples with mail theft.
Since Canada Post doesn’t want to be in the business of mail delivery, I feel that all delivery to these useless mail boxes be stopped.
Stop the door-to-door delivery and stop the box delivery. Instead,the mail should be delivered to the local Postal Office for pickup.
This is the only way to ensure it is safe and secure and everyone is guaranteed their mail.
Each Postal Outlet should be open from 8 AM to 11 PM every day, seven days a week and each Postal Outlet should be retrofitted to ensure that anyone with a mobility issue can easily make into the Postal Outlet.
This should come at the cost of Canada Post.
This solution in the long run will benefit Canada Post because they won’t have to hire mail delivery personnel which means less salary, benefits and pension paid out to personnel.
