Campbell River is still under a “red service alert” by Canada Post, meaning local staff won’t be making deliveries today, Jan. 7.
Following recent snowfall, the company says it’s attempting delivery to Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and other parts of Vancouver Island, but notes conditions are still too hazardous locally.
“The safety of our employees is our number one priority,” Canada Post says. “Delivery will resume once it is deemed safe to do so.”
“We encourage customers to clear the snow and ice from their walkways, stairs, and driveways, to ensure safe access to the front door for both their visitors, as well as their mail carriers, when service resumes,” it adds.
