LETTER: Canada Post boxes a safety concern

News Dec 09, 2014 Hamilton Mountain News

Apparently Canada Post is putting their new boxes in “No Parking” and “No Stopping” zones. Those are the same types of places that many school councils in Hamilton fought hard to get designated because of safety concerns.

Many parents just dropping off and picking up their children at schools get tickets for doing so.

Can you ask Canada Post to pay our tickets when we stop to pick up our mail?

Also, an engineer should personally look at the sites and not just Google them. They also should be required to get building permits form the City of Hamilton.
