Going Postal - Part 2

Some of you may remember that a few months ago, Danforth East lost its last Post Office. That may sound dramatic, but it's actually true. The closest full-service postal outlet is now at Woodbine and O'Connor or (if you're so inclined) at Chester and Danforth.

Unfortunately, Jack Layton's office wasn't fully aware of this situation until it was too late and even with some heavy-handed lobbying, the post office closed.

However, they are hoping to find a solution to this very serious problem (yes, even in this fast-paced world of email and Blackberry, people on Danforth East still need to mail packages and letters to loved ones...). They have planned a community meeting for this weekend, and I would like to urge everyone to attend. I usually try to be unbiased here at Pioneer, but we need to protect our Dandforth East assets. A post office is part of making a vibrant and safe community.

Here are the event details:
Date: Sunday February 21st, 2010
Time: 2:00-4:00pm
Location: WoodGreen Community Centre, 1491 Danforth Ave., Classrooms 1&2       
   (Coxwell & Danforth)

See you there!
