Canada Post just announced it has suspended the installation of community mailboxes as a means to replace home delivery for many Canadians. In its short life, the program racked up enough fails to make a lifelong enemy of many folks.
1. Like this Nova Scotia woman, whose mailbox flooded anytime there was heavy rain. Here she is with her drenched voter card for the federal election.
2. This man in Quebec couldn't reach the mail at the back of his mailbox. When he complained to Canada Post, it asked him to get a doctor to fill out a form with the dimensions of his arms. Then maybe they would install a sliding tray in his mailbox.
