Canada Post says a number of community mailboxes in Stratford are unsafe.  That’s why they’ve been wrapped in yellow caution tape.

Spokesperson Anick Losier says for the time being Canada Post has cordoned the boxes off and won’t be delivering mail to them.  Instead residents with an unsafe box will continue to get door-to-door delivery.

The issue appears to be the boxes that have been installed on raised, gravel platforms.

Losier couldn’t confirm exactly how many boxes have been deemed unsafe, but says that Canada Post is working with its contractors to fix them.  They’re hoping to have the issues resolved by mid-September.
