Residents of Port Clements will have to wait to find out the fate of the community’s post office.

Canada Post put forth a proposal that would see the office closed on Wednesday with extended hours on Saturday, but spokesperson John Caines said nothing is set in stone yet.

“We’re looking at that proposal as part of our nation-wide service review … there is no timeline for a decision. We will go through the process and then decide,” he said, noting any decision would be driven by usage.

“We’re looking at streamlining our retail outlets to make better use of the hours. If there are times when people are not using them, that would be where the reductions would be.”
