Holly Denine recently came across a Facebook page displaying a photo of her daughter Nevaeh Denine, with text that falsely stated her death was related to vaccines.

Kagerer said her bigger concern was the lack of communication

She said even after talking to Canada Post, she wasn't told she would have the option of picking her mail up at a post office.

"I think communication would have been great."

She said Canada Post also initially told her the skunk would have to be captured and carted away before service would resume.

Safety concern

Canada Post declined an interview on the issues, but in a statement confirmed that skunks caused a safety concern and residents should have been better informed.

"Mail delivery suspension can occur when there is a safety concern for our delivery agents," it said.

"Delivery resumed today, however in investigating, our customer notification process was not followed. We apologize to our customers."

Kagerer said she understands skunks are unpleasant and she sees them in the neighbourhood occasionally, but she has always simply backed away.

"There is ample room for escape should a skunk appear on my doorstep."
