Re: “Canada Post wants to eliminate my job as a letter carrier. Here’s why you should care

You rock sister Melanie.

People don't realize how many seniors meet you at the door to collect their mail. They do that for me and I'm not anywhere near as cute as you. They won't be out there waiting for the truck at the community mail box in their parkas with a smile. But it's not just seniors; it's underprivileged wondering why their cheque didn't arrive (because they can barely write their name) it's getting a parcel with no last names to the correct people because their granndkids or somebody addressed it (how many letters have I gotten to gumpie and nanny, no last names, or it's being sent from someone in jail (these letters break my heart every time I see the childlike scrawl- sorry folks, there's no email in jail) Computers can't sort this stuff, and community mail boxes don't have faces to attach to the names. Remember that the rural mailboxes replaced by the Community boxes were at the end of driveways, but in a small town you still knew your carrier-driver.

Thanks for writing this during the busiest time of the year. Merry christmas and solstice I'm celebrating the turn of light more than ever as a carrier) and be safe out there.
