    Good one Sampler haha

    Does anyone know if there is a charge for these mailboxes if so I might just op out I don’t want to pay $100 for a key so that they have someone to drop off junk mail.

    • FallenPixels says:

      I would think there would only be a charge for a lost key, this policy is already unpopular without fees for the keys

  3. Pepper says:

    No cost Tammy.
    Will cost you only if you lose both set of keys and Canada Post needs to change the existing lock.

    What’s this about the “first” community mailboxes?

    We’ve had community boxes for about 20 years in Rothesay,NB

    They look slightly different but essentially the same thing.

    Thanks for sharing. My postal code is up there. We never had door-to-door delivery to begin with. We have community boxes that cover a couple of streets. Looking at the PDF, they’re planning on covering half the city :/ I don’t like this change but I’m sure I’ll get used to it over time.
