Canada Post issues? We are publishing.
Canada Post, which usually delivers our newspaper door to door, may be experiencing labour issues due to a lock-out or strike.
Until we know the situation is resolved, we have to make other plans to avoid our printed newspapers being caught in a Canada Post building due to a lock-out or strike that happens a day or two after we deliver to Canada Post.
House and duplex residents
Residents of houses and duplexes without a “no junk mail” sticker on their doors should receive copies of the Independent on Thursdays in a Publisac. If you do have a “no junk mail” sticker, please contact me to add your name to a list that will be separately served.
Apartment and condominium dwellers
For apartment and condo residents, this week, we will target Westmount’s largest buildings with a stack of newspapers for your lobby. Please alert your doormen and staff if you would like to receive newspapers. As things go on, every apartment building should get its own “drop” of papers. Please call me if you want the paper and are not getting it.
Drop sites, emailed newspapers and website
Existing drop sites (municipal buildings, Metro grocery store, Tabagie Westmount Square etc.), the emailed newspaper list and the website will be maintained as is, but with more newspapers in some cases. Please call me if you have any suggestions.
Thank you for your help and patience at this time.
We wish management and labour at Canada Post good luck in their negotiations.
