Smoky skies stops some mail in B.C. over Canada Post health concerns

BY The Canadian Press, Sep 15, 2020 12:31 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

After suspending mail service yesterday over a wide area of Vancouver Island and southern B-C, Canada Post still hasn't said if service has resumed today.

The corporation halted delivery arguing soaring concentrations of smoke wafting up from wildfires in Washington state, Oregon and California make delivery unsafe for its workers.

Environment Canada is maintaining air quality advisories over most of B-C and the air quality index shows much of the province is enduring conditions that can create a very high health risk.

The weather office says smoke concentrations could fall slightly today but ground-level smoke is expected to linger until later this week.
