A crowd of 50 staged a protest in St. John's Saturday over Canada Post's plans to eliminate door-to-door mail service and increase postage rates.

A crowd of approximately 50 staged a protest in front of the Canada Post Kenmount Road outlet in St. John's on Saturday afternoon.

A few brief remarks were made during the event, which lasted approximately 15 minutes. Those on hand were encouraged to sign a petition to be presented in the House of Commons in Ottawa.

Attendees were also given posters to place in their windows reading, "Canada Post … I'm For Door–To–Door."
