Letters to the Editor

We should be able to opt out of Canada Post service

Editor: Letter writer G. Hancock of Langley (The Times, Jan. 30), puts forward a common sense solution regarding the myriad of troubles surrounding home-to-home mail delivery. If such reasonableness cannot prevail, then perhaps the next step is to opt out of mail delivery by Canada Post.

Is there a law that says a person must have a mailing address and receive traditional mail — particularly in this electronic communications age? Perhaps there is, and if so, it may need to be revised to meet our changing times.

Opting out of Canada Post is not an unreasonable approach, considering Hancock’s well-stated appraisal of the community mailbox solution.  It’s something to consider.
