This morning at 11 o'clock I went to pick up my mail. The boxes weren't cleared of snow. My driveway had been plowed/blown out two hours earlier. People from the community with snow-clearing machines drive right past the super boxes on this road.

Canada Post superboxes in the snow.
David Henderson of Canada Post P.E.I. told me that the contractor(s) hired by Canada Post have to clear the transit boxes and other areas in Charlottetown before they get around to us out here!!
Mr. Henderson was unable to tell me the name of the person responsible for clearing snow from the boxes in our area. He was also unable to give me any idea when I might access my mail.
I drove up again close to noon and took this photo.
It appears that the contractor isn't removing the excess snow, so the great clumps are falling off the ever-growing pile and are laying in front of the boxes.
I would like to ask Madam Minster Lisa Raitt, who is responsible for this 'service', could you explain the reason for such poor 'service'? And can you give me any assurance about better 'service' in the future?
