On the front page of today’s Telegram, the union representing Canada Post employees is worried new mail-sorting automation will mean longer routes and heavier loads for mail carriers and possible delivery delays for customers.
Union spokesman Craig Dyer said since the changes customer complaints have “gone through the roof.”
The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Tuesday’s print edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Tuesday Family section.
Inside Tuesday’s print edition:
• Back in 2007, The Telegram spoke to a 28-year-old blogger on his financial plans. At the time the Frugal Trader, as he’s known, had a net worth of $259,128 and an ambitious plan to increase that to $1 million by the age of 35. Now, 33, The Telegram checked in with the Frugal Trader to find out how his plan was working out — not too badly, as we discovered.
• A seagull which got impaled on a spike atop St. Patrick’s Church in St. John’s over the weekend is still causing comments. The fact the bird died, still pinned to the roof, when no one came to its aid — despite calls to the fire department, the city and animal control agencies — isn’t sitting well with some residents. The Telegram hit the streets to find out what people thought.
• It’s been a rough week for water safety in this province. In the editorial today, caution is advised for anyone heading out on the water after four water-related deaths since last Tuesday.
• In Tuesday’s Family section, columnist Susan Flanagan looks at plans by members of Memorial University’s Students in Free Enterprise to help local recyclers and fellow columnist Steve Bartlett contemplates the latest addition to his family.
• In Sports, Monday’s bomb scare and resulting decision to close all outdoor sports facilities came as a bit of a surprise for organizers at the Molson Senior Softball League — particularly as they were told to cancel their games while intermediate baseball games at St. Pat’s and soccer at King George V Park went ahead as normal.
