Cornwall - Jun. 12, 2011 - The postal strike began at the beginning of June and up until now there has been very little disruption for Cornwall and SD&G residents. However, all Canadians have been affected by Canada Post’s decision to limit mail delivery to three days per week due to lower volume in the last two weeks.
