No junk mail please

A quick followup to my previous post on junk mail. Today I went to get my mail and not only did we have a publisac on the front stoop, we also had junk mail in our mail box from Canada Post! Not really all that shocking when you think of it. These folks are just trying to deliver their route as fast as possible, but they should still honour our request.

What was amazing about the publisac was that we got two publisacs that were identical. Furthermore their contents were spread out across the step, a bench in front of our house, our flower garden and up the walk way. Since it was raining a bit, this made a soggy mess.

A phone call to Canada Post at 1-866-607-6301 was met with a very friendly reception, and they promised to send the issue to the supervisor who would then get a message to the delivery dude or dudette. For publisac I found these two numbers—General Delivery 514-337-6920 and West Island/Lachine 514-636-5559—and got a very friendly reception there also, with a promise to have the matter sorted.

We will see if the matter improves now.
