Postal workers set up Camp in Westboro Beach Community

Canada postal workers have set up a tent and trailer on Churchill Avenue across from the home of a Westboro Beach Resident. The current location blocks the view of the Ottawa River from the home of Linda Kitchigesic who is facing a terminal illness. The postal box location is on the west side of Churchill where there is still letter delivery. The neighbours in the area and the Westboro Beach Community association were not consulted about the change in location of the boxes that blocks the view of the Selby Plains. The letter carriers are on the site 24 hours a day and sleep overnight in a tent adjacent to their trailer. Many neighbours have Save Door to Door  signs on their front yards and some are located in the  new green space square at the corner of Workman and Churchill Avenue. In the photo below, letter carrier Jo-Anne Smiley joins Richard Gaboton, a staffer with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers at the site of the protest.
