Thunder Bay is rotating postal strike site

Expect to see less mail delivered to your doors.  Canada Post is trimming staff levels at mail sorting plants. And, starting next week, it's ordering letter carriers to deliver letters only three days a week -Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Spokesman Jon Hamilton says it's because mail volumes have dropped by half since last Thursday, when postal workers began a series of rotating strikes.  Rotating walkouts hit 13 communities today, including Thunder Bay.
