Expect potential mail delays as a result of wildfire smoke in the area.
On Monday afternoon, Canada Post issued a service delivery alert, stating it was suspending delivery for the day across much of Southern B.C. — including Kamloops — due to poor air quality resulting from smoke from U.S. wildfires.
Much of the province is engulfed in smoke, which is coming from fires burning south of the border.
“The safety of our employees is our number one priority,” Canada Post said in a media advisory, noting it would not be sending out agents.
The suspended service affects not only the Kamloops area, but areas throughout the southern and central regions of the province, from Vancouver Island to Metro Vancouver, Okanagan and Kootenay regions.
Canada Post said delivery would resume once it was deemed safe. Forecasts are calling for the smoke to begin to dissipate on Tuesday or Wednesday.
