Town Hall: What does the end of home mail delivery mean for Oak Bay?

  • Oak Bay United Church 1355 Mitchell St Victoria, BC, V8S 4P9 Canada (map)

Canada Post's plan to eliminate home mail service--now being implemented in Victoria's V9A postal code--is coming soon to the rest of Victoria and Oak Bay.

I've raised concerns with Canada Post about how this change will impact seniors, people with disabilities, small businesses, and others. I've also met with the mayors of Victoria and Oak Bay to hear their concerns about its effects on parking, municipal budgets, and more.

Now, to share the latest news from Victoria and hear the questions and concerns of Oak Bay residents, I'm hosting a town hall at Oak Bay United Church on Thursday, July 2nd from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

We'll hear from Victoria Councillor Marianne Alto about the City's experience with Canada Post, and from Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen about the particular concerns of small municipalities and the challenges Canada Post's plan could create in established, heritage neighbourhoods.

All are welcome at this free and open event. Bring your questions!
