  • Saskatoon Weyburn and Moose Jaw postal workers walked off the job Tuesday morning

If you live in Ottawa, Renfrew and Arnprior, don't go to your mailbox, you'll find it empty.

Canada Post's rotating strikes remain in northern Ontario again Thursday, where workers are on the picket line in North Bay.

Victoria saw a day of strike action by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers on October 22, the day the rotating strikes began.

About 6,000 Canada Post employees in Montreal have walked off the job, along with postal workers in several other cities as ongoing rotating strikes continue across the country.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says walkouts started in Charlottetown and Summerside, P.E.I., on Wednesday just after midnight local time, and at 1 a.m. ET in Joliette.

Scuffle leads to 13 people dying after China bus plunge
This is the moment a bus crashed into a river, killing all 15 people onboard, after a fight between the driver and a passenger. Thirteen bodies have been found and two remain missing, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Workers are also out in Weyburn, Sask., and seven Ontario communities, including Cobourg, Deep River, Fort Frances, Peterborough and Kapuskasing.

For its part, Canada Post says it has made "significant offers" to CUPW - which include increased wages, job security and improved benefits - and has not asked for any concessions in return.

John and Fort Nelson will be joining striking workers today, said a Dawson Creek mail carrier to the Dawson Creek Mirror Tuesday morning.

"But they don't address a single one of our major issues, Palecek said in a statement on the union's website".
