Canada Post is pulling the plug on the installation of community mailboxes – a week after the Trudeau Liberals were elected.

The party’s platform contained a pledge to scrap the progress away from door-to-door mail delivery.

But those already converted over the past 10 months  are out of luck.

They won’t get door-to-door service back – at least not under Canada Post’s current plan.

The union representing postal employees says it’s elated with the news – but Canadian Union of Postal Workers national president Mike Palecek says the union will also be pushing the Trudeau government to reverse the cuts to postal services – that have been made so far.
