If Canada Post was trying to save Money Why did not they reduce the times each week mail is delivered rather than destroy the entire system mail carriers told the news this week they have fielded a flurry of questions from homeowners. Thatus despite the fact that the postal workers Union has opposed the plan since it was announced in late 2013. Carriers Are working hard to make sure people get their mail said Angela kettles the vice president of the local unit of the Canadian Union of postal workers.
