Re: "Canada Post is lazy, hard to get a hold of," the Now letters, Aug. 27.
Ms. McCauley's experience with Canada Post is certainly not unique. We live in a condominium complex in White Rock and have the same experience numerous times over more than 20 years. In addition, there is frequently no delivery at all on Fridays, or Mondays - a good way for the mail person to get a long weekend.
Complaining has not helped. It's he said, she said. There is no monitoring system for mail delivery, and Canada Post mail persons get paid for the whole day even though they can go home at any time as long as all mail for that day has been delivered (in theory of course).
Because they rush to get their mail delivered, we often receive other people's mail or they receive ours.
There is no pride in their work. Canada Post is unreliable and they don't care.
