Poilievre & Good Health Pharmacy Announce
Canada Post Office in Riverside South
Riverside South —On Thursday, November 10th, Pierre Poilievre, MP for Nepean-Carleton, and Rob Cameron, owner of Good Health Pharmacy, announced that an agreement has been signed with Canada Post to open a post office in Riverside South. This announcement comes just in time for the busy Christmas season ahead.
According to the Riverside South Community Association, there are already 3,300 homes in the area and, at an anticipated growth rate of 13.5%, it is the largest growing community in Ottawa.
Despite the population growth, the community has not had easy access to a full service post office. In the past, residents of Riverside South have had to travel to Manotick or McCarthy Rd to conduct their postal business, both locations several kilometres from the community. Poilievre said, “For the past year, my constituents in Riverside South have been expressing the need for a post office in this ever expanding community, and I am happy that this is finally becoming a reality.”
Cameron said that he and the staff are all very excited for this new addition to the business. “It has been a pleasure to work with Canada Post to ensure that this important need in Riverside South is met,” he said.
Located at 4188 Spratt Rd, Good Health Pharmacy is expected to commence full postal services on December 8th.
