Postal Workers want to go to Gaza, but can't deliver mail in bad weather.....

Matt Gurney makes CUPW look downright silly (for their plan to sail to Gaza), not a hard thing to do....
Also, isn’t it a bit weird that Canadian postal workers are suddenly willing to brave the power of the Israeli Navy to get mail to Gazans when they’re so easily deterred getting mail to you and me? If it snows more than a centimetre or two in Toronto, little notices get put into mailboxes announcing that delivery is suspended until safety conditions in front of the house are improved — i.e. the steps gets shovelled. (Of course, postal workers have to risk death on slippery front steps to deliver the warning, but that’s just another example of their heroic devotion to duty.)

In Moose Jaw, delivery was recently cancelled due to the danger of mean birds.
Home mail delivery in Moose Jaw, Sask., is being disrupted — again — following renewed aerial assaults on letter carriers by protective hawks that have taken up residence in a neighbourhood. Residents of four city blocks were notified Friday that service was being suspended due to safety concerns.
The hawks were nesting in a pine tree, and swooping at postal carriers. They tried to “outwit” the birds by sending carriers down both sides of the street at the same time, but the birds were too smart for that. So, no mail, for the second year in a row. The hawks don’t seem to bother the streets’ residents, or their kids, but kids are evidently made of sterner stuff.

A dusting of snow? Territorial birds? Perfectly justifiable reason for Canadian postal workers to stop delivering mail to Canadians. Israel enforcing an embargo of weapons and potential weapon-building material on people who have repeatedly fired rockets blindly at civilian targets? That’s outrageous and will not stand! Thanks so much, Canadian postal workers. Nice to know where your priorities lie.

They also will not be able to deliver the Gazan mail on pre-long weekend Friday.
