Re: "Mailbox sites anger residents" (July 25). While I can empathize with those who may not want the attendant traffic or trash potential immediately adjacent to their homes, I, for one, would welcome a mailbox that close to home.

We have been notified of our new box location -- 31/2 blocks away. Not too bad in the summer, but the reasoning defies logic. There's an existing mailbox, which could be expanded, a mere two blocks away.

What was the purpose of polling residents to determine preferences if Canada Post just does whatever it wants?
