Starting on April 15th, all mail being sent within Lethbridge
will be taken to Calgary for processing and then sent back to Lethbridge for
delivery. About 77 mailboxes in the city will be de-twinned, so instead of
depositing your mail into one of two separate boxes for local-to-local (in city delivery) or outgoing (for other destinations), all
mail will be placed in one box.
Spokesperson Anick Losier says, "Mail is

There will be no job losses as a result of this, as employees will be reassigned
to other duties.
