Canada Post advice for homeowners after storm
Chances are you've shovelled your driveway, provided you have one, but you need to shovel the front door area, too.
Canada Post says it's important to do what you can to make it as easy and as safe as possible for the letter carrier to access your mailbox after a storm.
"Clear the walk, clear your stairs, put some salt down. I know the front door rarely gets any use. I know at my house we go into the garage. Before I started working at Canada Post, I always forgot because you go in and out of the house, you don't even look out and then you have a visitor and you say sorry I didn't even clear the walk. The more you can do that speeds it up and makes it safer and it also makes it safer for anyone dropping by to say hi during the holidays", said Jon Hamilton in an interveiw with Abe Hefter Friday afternoon.
Hamilton says 80 delivery trucks got stuck in the record-breaking storm and that delivery was called off for safety reasons at 11 o'clock yesterday.
He also expressed his gratitude to Montrealers for their acts of kindness in helping the trucks move along in such difficult circumstances.
