Canada Post will be introducing new graffiti-proof drop boxes in Winnipeg as part of a nation wide replacement program.

The new boxes will be graffiti resistant and have high-security locks to prevent theft. The mailbags in the boxes have also been replaced with a plastic box. The plastic box allows carries to spot any dangerous materials that may have been dropped inside.

640 mailboxes in Winnipeg will be replaced by the end of August. I also hope they have found a way to secure these things to the ground! I have a mailbox right in front of my house, and I lost count of how many times it has been knocked down by little pranksters.
