More and more community residents are standing up to stop the installation of community mailboxes (CMB).
With the support of local CUPW members, a resident of Hamilton, Ontario started the ball rolling by occupying a planned CMB site – around the clock in his lounge chair surrounded by Save Door-to-Door lawn signs.
Next, a citizen of Dorval, Quebec had a load of dirt dumped on a designated CMB location, surrounded it with locked scaffolds, and topped it off with 47 “Save Door-to-door” lawn signs delivered by the Montreal Local.
Another resident in Ottawa, with the help of nearby CUPW members, started a full-time occupation of a CMB pad a few weeks ago. The occupation transformed in to a garden-building task force, and a medicine garden now grows on the site.
The latest round-the-clock occupation is taking place in Edmonton: a resident, again with the help of CUPW members, is preventing the installation of CMBs and using our campaign lawn signs to denounce Canada Post’s faiure to consult or listen.
All signs indicate that Canada Post and the federal Conservative Party will continue to ignore Canadians’ concerns regarding the withdrawal of door-to-door delivery and other service cuts, so it will be up to the voters on October 19!
