COMMUNITY MAIL BOXES
17 January 2023
9 Ruben Street, Kemptville, ON
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I would like to bring to your attention the poor condition of the postal boxes on Colonel Drive in North Grenville, Ontario.
These boxes are now more than thirty years old. We moved here in September, 1993 . The current boxes were there when we moved in and have never been replaced or even upgraded. The boxes have deteriorated and are a disgrace to Canada Post. In the winter time, the locks become frozen and we are unable to open them or close them properly. The box where parcels are left by the carrier has become so worn that the lock is unworkable. This winter has been particularly bad and our own box has been frozen shut and impossible to open. It should not be necessary for me to have to bring a de-icer with me whenever I go for my mail. That is unacceptable.
The replacement of these boxes with newer more up-to-date boxes is overdue. I would appreciate your forwarding my letter to whichever Canada Post Department is responsible for the maintenance and replacement of community mail boxes.
