Having trouble mailing a letter lately? If so, it might have something to do with the number of Canada Post mailboxes around!
The postal service says it removed more than 1,000 letter-boxes across the country over the last few years as household mail has dropped off more than 17 per cent.
The trend of removing boxes is expected to continue, as more people go online to pay their bills.
The C.D. Howe Institute says Canada Post is not doing enough if it wants to survive once letter mail becomes obsolete. It says the crown corporation should be privatized.
Do you think they should do more to save ‘snail mail’? Or is it just the way it should be, with everything going online?
