Canada Post is halting the installation of community mailboxes, one week after the Trudeau Liberals were elected with a pledge to scrap the move away from door-to-door mail delivery.

The Crown corporation says it is temporarily suspending the program.

The agency says this means that roughly 460,000 households that were to be converted over the next two months will keep their current mail service.

But those already converted over the last 10 months, including many customers in Fort St. John who only Monday, started to receive mail through the new system, will not get door-to-door service back — at least not under Canada Post’s current plan.

The union representing postal employees says it’s elated with the news.

But Canadian Union of Postal Workers national president Mike Palecek says the union will be pushing the Liberal government to reverse the cuts to postal services that have been made so far.
