Canada Post Employees are made of sugar

Dear Editor,

I just saw the news clips on CBC and CTV – television and online – that Canada Post has suspended mail delivery in parts of British Columbia because the smoke from the US wildfires is “too dangerous for them.” Wow. Not like a real mail system as in the US where the moto is something like, “Neither rain, nor snow, nor heat, nor gloom of night….”etc. It is a well-known fact that our posties are soft, but following is an even more startling fact about how soft they really are.

A short while ago, while travelling in a Canadian town that shall remain un-named, the town was having a water supply issue. As a temporary measure, the community involved had run a network with a single two inch water pipe at ground level along the front lawn of each house to provide water to each of the households. Meanwhile, Canada Post had deemed the pipe a hazard to their mail carriers. They couldn’t safely step over the ground level two inch pipe, and had suspended delivery to the houses in question! Unbelievable!
