DAVIDSON — Canada Post is cracking down on rural postal employees sorting mail by hand.
The company says all mail received at rural post offices like Davidson must be sent to a regional centre — in this case, Regina — to be sorted automatically.
A Canada Post spokesperson said the corporation is simply enforcing an existing policy, and that there haven’t been any changes to the rules.
“To confirm, this is not a new process for Davidson or other rural post offices in your area,” Phil Legault said in an email to the Leader.
At a recent district meeting, rural employees were reminded of the policy, which is intended to standardize services for all customers.
The policy applies to all outgoing mail, whether it’s going to a post office box in Davidson or across the country.
