MP Larry Miller Sick of Canada Post’s Refusal to Deliver Mail to Rural Residents

Ottawa, ON – Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, has had enough of Canada Post attempting to take away rural mail delivery; an essential service to rural residents.

Canada Post is now refusing to deliver mail to residents at Bass Lake and has instead proposed a community mailbox that is to be located on the very busy Grey County Road 17. Safety concerns have been cited as the principle concern surrounding this decision.

 

“This is yet another slap in the face to rural residents from Canada Post. Canada Post is attempting to use safety concerns as a way to avoid delivering mail to these residents,” said Miller. “This decision is certainly not based on safety as it will clearly be much more dangerous to have residents picking up their mail on a heavy traffic road as they have proposed. This is unacceptable.”

 

Mr. Miller has been in contact with Canada Post to voice his disdain over their decision.
