Canada Post goes to court to strike down Hamilton bylaw

Canada Post has struck back at the city of Hamilton’s legal attempts to dictate where the corporation can put super mailboxes.

The corporation is asking Ontario Superior Court to declare a new city bylaw around community mailboxes invalid, saying it is acting out of "urgent need to transform the postal business."

The Canada Post action is the latest escalation in the super mailbox fight, coming after the city laid 8 charges against the corporation for continuing the installations, contrary to the city’s new rules.

The city’s newly amended bylaw says Canada Post has to pay a $200 fee and get the city’s input on where on municipal property it can put community mailboxes, which are part of a plan to phase out urban door-to-door mail delivery nationwide.
