MONTREAL — The rotating postal strikes, which have so far mostly impacted smaller communities, are leaving a mark on two of the country’s biggest cities today, Toronto and Montreal.
Canada Post spokesman Jon Hamilton says that mail delivery has been scaled back as the rotating strikes cause mail volumes to decline.
Urban letter carriers will be delivering mail Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
He says when service resumes on Wednesday, Canadians could receive less mail.
But Hamilton says rural areas aren’t touched by the rotating strikes and they will continue to get delivery five days a week.
He says both sides are still at the table and Canada Post still wants a negotiated settlement.
Hamilton says 60 per cent of the country’s mail flows through Toronto and Montreal and the impact will be felt across Canada.
