Stop SSMB Street Party on Talavera Crescent, as City Hall asks Canada Post to stop mailbox installation

Londoners4door2door Turns Up the Heat on Canada Post with a "Stop Self-Serve Mailbox" Party on Talavera Crescent -- City Council calls for a Halt to SSMBs.

Londoners4door2door is having an impromptu party on a site on Talavera Crescent in east London that Canada Post has targeted for a SSMB (Self-Serve Mailbox) site and the home-owners are furious about it. Several neighbours have dropped by the site to express their support for keeping the CMB site off the street. 

"We just decided to have a street Stop the SSMBs party when we saw they were trying to put down a concrete pad," states Stewart Wise, a member of Londoners4door2door. "Our neighbours are saying that it will be difficult to get to the site in the winter with snow blocking the SSMB and there have been several reports of injuries sustained by people across the country attempting to access their mail in winter conditions. Canada Post does not pay the related costs of snow or litter removal, nor does it provide accommodations on a consistent basis. This is going to cost the City and Londoners a lot of money and result in jobs losses." 

"This is a huge issue heading into the federal election,"  says Patti Dalton, part of Londoners4door2door. "We have been on doorsteps since January talking to Londoners and we know that they are angry about CMBs and want to retain their cherished door to door mail delivery.  Many people have said that Canada Post refuses to listen to their concerns about safety issues or the need for accommodations for those with mobility challenges."

This community response follows a first SSMB site sit-in last week on Cavendish Crescent, which led to media attention, and now London's City Council is finally taking a position on how Canada Post misled the City regarding their reporting about consultation with affected London communities.

I was infected with HIV virus in the 2012,i went to many hospitals, churches for cure but there was no solution out, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that i cannot loose my life, I lost everything I have my husband run away from me and also took my children along because of my sickness. One day I was in the river side thinking the next step to take if it is to jump into the river so that I can loose my life totally or just think where I can go to get solution. so a lady walk to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to him telling her my stories, she told me that she can help me out that’s the reason she normally come here to help people so that thy can be cured because she was into this problem before, she introduce me to a doctor who cast spells on people and gave me his number and email so i called him and also email him. He told me all the things I need to provide and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly.
