The financially-strapped Canada Post is phasing out home mail delivery over the next five years, replacing the door-to-door service with community mail boxes in central locations.

Canada Post will also cut 6,000 to 8,000 jobs in the postal industry, and raise the price of the postage stamp by 22 cents.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with CBC reporter  Rosemary Barton about the shift in Canada, and then talks with Washington Post reporter  Ed O’Keefe about what the U.S. can learn from its northern neighbor.
