I can't help thinking of the elderly, infirm and handicapped. How do you go get your mail, all the way down the block in the snow and ice when you're seventy-five with a cane? The other egregious thing is that we pay exorbitant prices to mail anything! Just to mail a little package, like two inches square and an inch high, weighing a pound. It costs us more than $10 to ship that to the next city, like Nanaimo to Victoria which is less than a two hour drive in the car. Sheesh.

I am totally crossing my fingers and praying to the mail Gods that the next election this Fall will change this whole community mailbox plan. I miss the old mailboxes. Now seeing one is like seeing public phone booths, dinosaurs and dodo birds.
