This instalment of You Make the Call features a Canada Post letter carrier who was accused of throwing admail away rather than delivering it.

Harjot Grewal was a letter carrier in Georgetown, Ont., with two years of service for Canada Post. On Nov. 20, 2009, he covered a route for another carrier on vacation and then did overtime delivering mail on a split of two other routes, including 149 pieces of admail for Chrysler automobiles. In order to facilitate his delivery, Grewal was given a van.

Grewal started the route shortly after noon and returned to the station at 2:30 p.m. About ten minutes before he returned, a woman on his route telephoned Canada Post to complain that she saw a Canada Post van stop at a ravine near her house, the driver get out and throw a pile of flyers into the ravine.
