Post Office

It seems this neighbourhood is all fired up about the imminent closure of the postal outlet at Coxwell and Danforth.  One of our number contacted MP Jack Layton’s office and received the response below from his constituency assistant.  She’s encouraging calls to Canada Post directly and to two other MPs.
