Canada Post promises investigation after Halifax mailbox left open all weekend
Concerned resident called Canada Post Friday, box still wide open on Monday

By Blair Rhodes, CBC News Posted: Jun 13, 2016 7:09 PM AT Last Updated: Jun 13, 2016 7:09 PM AT

This Canada Post mailbox in Armdale was first discovered left open on Friday. (CBC)

Canada Post has launched an investigation into why a community mailbox in Halifax was left open over the weekend, even after the Crown corporation was told twice by a neighbour who spotted the problem.

"This incident is absolutely unacceptable," spokesman Mouktar Abdillahi wrote in a statement to CBC News.

"We apologize and truly appreciate the diligence of the resident who contacted us, which is exactly what anyone with concerns should do."

Craig Potter spotted the problem Friday afternoon when he went to check his mail at the community mailbox on Stonehaven Street in the suburban Halifax neighbourhood of Armdale.

'Everything in this box is open'

The panel that gives postal workers access to all the individual mailboxes had been left ajar.

"Right now, everything in this box is open," Potter said in an interview early Monday afternoon.

"This is where the delivery person, you can see mail in here. The parcels, if there were any, would be available, someone's Mastercard statement, personal mail."

A total of 16 individual boxes and two larger slots for holding parcels were open.

Potter called Canada Post on Friday afternoon. When nothing had been done by Saturday morning, he called again. When the boxes were still open on Monday, he called CBC.

"It's disappointing to see the, I guess, lack of caring," Potter said.

I wouldn't worry too much, they're putting Amazon as top priority to try to keep them happy in hopes to keep them as a customer. As for the not knocking, it's different by each courier, but they are trained to knock/or ring doorbell for when signature isn't required.

A friend of mine is dealing with a bit of a Canada Post screw up. He ordered something to be delivered to Vancouver. Tracking his package from California, it went from California, to Ontario, across Canada, finally to Richmond...

Then to Alaska and now to Tokyo

LOL

Doesnt work if your business uses group mailbox located in the industrial park.

Canada Post never deliver package or mail to my business only to the mail room. They leave pickup card in mail box. Whereas fedex or dhl they actually go the extra mile and deliver stuff right to my unit.

Of the ones that do track, it shows the shipment is sitting somewhere for over 2 weeks with no updates.
This has been happening to packages I've sent via canada post to the US the past 1-2 months

Just shows as "package has arrived in foreign country" with no other updates...

IMHO CP has some serious internal efficiency issue as well as its pricing algorithm.

I was trying to mail a box of used baby stuff to my friend a while back (when loonie was closer to parity), and it was a whopping $79.xx to ship it from BC to ON as the cheapest option.

I decided against mailing it because it didn't make much sense and the box sit in my trunk. The next day I was in Blaine picking up some stuff and I saw that box. Out of curiosity, I went to the USPS office to get a quote, it was just over U$50 to ship. So I mailed it out just to CP.

To my surprise, the parcel got there in 2 days. That's the moment I realized how deep of a trouble CP was in. How can USPS ships a package to cross the fucking border faster and cheaper than CP does it domestically?

Because Amazon doesn't give a shit about customer service any more than UPS does.

CP would of been the ones to deliver it once it reached Canada. They also deliver packages for all of the other couriers to remote towns. As for Purolator they are owned by Canada Post

I know... hence the fuck'd up part. It almost seems that CP cares more about foreign packages than domestic ones.

Living in a condo, Canada Post package always marked as delivered but only get delivery notice 3 business days after. Even if I'm present at home, same thing. Tracking doesnt even say they leave it at the local post office. I always ended up going to office to pick it up without the notice card. It's a joke really like delivery guy doesn't give a fuck.

Living in a condo, they dont really buzz or knock for parcel, they leave a notice right away regardless of me leaving my buzzer number on the 2nd line of address on all parcels. Good thing is that the guy is consistent on his delivery time so when I am expecting something, I just catch him in person and ask for it. Sometimes they apologize because they know they didnt attempt to contact me before the notice. I don't really mind this.

But the most annoying thing is all the flyers and spam I get. Is there an option to reject it? It's ridiculous how many I get. I sometimes even wonder if its sanctioned by Canada post or if the delivery guy is doing it for side cash from businesses.

yes. i noticed that condos in high dense areas tend to get way more junk flyers than my detached house. Im also looking for ways to stop the spam mail. I don't care about savings with stupid coupons or london drugs weekly flyers. Sometimes I just want to seal off my mailbox with concrete so I don't have to deal with canada post but then I wont receive government letters so that's how backwards this stupid country is.
It's fine they don't knock or ring. but now they don't even come out to deliver more than 2 times each week. I just hate them so much

Canada post left a slip that said they will be available at post office X
I went to X the next day and they said never have such parcel
so I went the other day, still no result, and they won't be able to track where it is, but online tracking page indicated delivered
end up calling the office and found they dropped at another post office...........

Ok, I live in a condo as well, and I haven't received a single flyer in over 7 YEARS! This is what you do, tape a 'reddotcampaign' sticker to the inside of your mailbox on the bottom edge and that's it! Unfortunately, plenty of other residents get the junk mail and flyers, which just end up in the recycle bin. So, if I really wanted a particular flyer, I just grab whichever one from there.
