Miles Road super mailbox site

Canada Post is still considering whether it will install a super mailbox at this location on Miles Road, just south of Rymal, and another location further south. The road is narrow and the shoulder drops off quickly into a ditch. The switch from home delivery to communal boxes began July 20 on the Mountain and in upper Stoney Creek; about 100 homes that are to be served by the two Rymal boxes are still receiving door-to-door service.
