Canada Post suspends deliveries until smoke clears enough for carriers to be safe

Castlegar, Trail, Nelson and Cranbrooks residents will not be receiving mail delivery today, and perhaps not for a few days to come, either, as the majority of B.C. remains blanketed in heavy wildfire smoke.

In a Facebook post today, Canada Post said the following:

|Due to poor air quality in central and southern British Columbia caused by smoke from forest fires in the western United States, we are suspending delivery for the day and not sending our delivery agents out as conditions have made it unsafe. Delivery will resume once it is deemed safe to do so."
