This is what Canada should have done rather than phasing out home delivery of mail in favour of not-so-super "super mailboxes".
For those not in the know "super mailboxes" are basically community mailboxes located somewhere in your neighbourhood. The not-so-super aspects of this is that they are subject to vandalism, theft, and arson (yes, arson). Additionally, some people feel it acceptable to drop their junk mail straight on the ground, rather than take it home for recycling. And, finally, for some folks (elderly, disabled) fetching mail by trekking out to a super-mailbox in the middle of a Canadian winter is a less than pleasant experience.
One can only assume that the sensible approach of cutting mail delivery from 5 to, say, 3 days a week was not taken so as not to upset the postal union (CUPW).
