Fort Frances Supports Postal Workers

Postal Workers in Fort Frances are fighting to keep door-to-door mail delivery in the community.

Canada Post plans to replace it with community mailboxes.

Canadian Union of Postal Workers local president Sandra Lange says they'd rather get rid of the ones already in place.

Lange says four positions will be cut once the mailboxes are implemented.

Fort Frances town council is adding its voice in support of the postal workers by passing a resolution in support of door-to-door mail delivery.

It's now one of more than 50 communities across the country who've come out in support of the service staying put.
