TRURO - Colchester County Council has agreed to send a letter of concern to Canada Post regarding the Crown Corporation's decision to end urban house delivery.

TRURO - Colchester County Council has agreed to send a letter of concern to Canada Post regarding the Crown Corporation's decision to end urban house delivery.

"You can't just sidestep this," Coun. Mike Cooper said of the decision to end door-to-door urban mail delivery over a five-year period.

"I think it's time for the federal government to step in and fix it."

Mayor Bob Taylor agreed with sending a letter of concern to Canada Post but he said he was not pleased with the way a recent meeting held in Truro by unionized postal workers was carried out.

"I think it's important for us to try and keep that service," Taylor said, while adding that he was "not very happy" with the format of the meeting.

"I didn't like the way we were treated in the invitation," he said, adding the letter suggested that if county representatives did not attend, postal union members would make that information public.

"I didn't like it and I won't go again (to any such future sessions)."

Another public session has been scheduled by the union for March 14.
