This instalment of You Make the Call looks at a mail carrier who was fired after bulk admail he was supposed to deliver was found discarded.

Luc Rivard was a mail carrier for Canada Post in Calgary for more than 25 years. There was no door-to-door delivery as all of the residences get their mail through community mail boxes.

Canada Post receives unaddressed commercial admail from clients who pay for it to be delivered to residences, which accounts for 20 per cent of Canada Post’s overall revenue. It reminded its employers through letters, e-mails and staff meetings of the importance of admail delivery. It was standard practice to allow carriers three days to deliver all the admail on their route.
