A Delta man is raising security concerns after a community mailbox was left unlocked and wasn’t fixed for four days.
Resident Roger Meyer said he noticed his mailbox unit was wide open at around 3 p.m. Friday, and even though he immediately contacted Canada Post, it took until Tuesday morning for the mailbox to be closed.
Meyer said when he first called, a Canada Post representative told him the issue was a “high priority” and would be fixed within four hours, but he woke up the next morning to see the mailbox door still ajar.
“I phone back and asked, ‘Would it be okay if I put the mail in a box to keep it safe?’ And I was told ‘No, that would be tampering,’” Meyer said. “I thought, ‘Yeah, I guess it is. I’d better leave it to be tampered with by vandals and bad guys.’”
