Wildfire smoke from the U.S. continues to affect Canada Post Service

Canada Post has changed some of the alerts for places that were impacted by smoke

Some areas in B.C. won't be getting mail at all, while Canada Post will try to deliver what it can in others

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Canada Post has made some changes to its alerts after deliveries were delayed Monday because of smoky air.

The corporation said it wasn’t safe to send carriers out, but conditions in certain regions have changed.

Some places are affected by a red alert, meaning they won’t get mail at all.

Other places have been given a yellow alert, meaning that Canada Post will try to deliver what it can.

Service was called off Monday in parts of southern B.C. as the company cited concern for its employees working in the smoky air.

An air quality advisory remains in place around Metro Vancouver and conditions aren’t expected to improve until the weather changes later this week.

Canada Post updates will be posted here.
