Mail delays in Hope due to weather and staffing

Canada Post says normal delivery in place but weather delays continue

Some Hope residents may not be receiving mail on a regular schedule because of delivery delays caused by weather and staffing.

Canada Post confirmed one route was affected by “unanticipated issues with staffing” and the entire mail delivery area is affected by the winter weather.

“Although our delivery agents are out and delivering, the conditions can slow them down and some customers may not receive mail today,” Darcia Kmet, media relations staff with Canada Post, stated in an email Friday.

She advised customers who are having issues with their mail to contact Canada Post’s customer service line at 1-800-267-1177.
