Attention: Assignment Editor

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2007) -

Time: 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST

Postal Elves at Canada Post will be spending a few hours this Sunday reviewing all Santa letters destined for the National Capital Region and responding to the new letters that have arrived since we temporarily shut down the program on Thursday.

"We knew that our postal elves were terribly upset that someone had caused concern to children and their parents at a time normally filled with joy," said Cindy Daoust, the chief co-ordinator of the Santa Letter-writing Program. "They have volunteered to come in this weekend and do whatever it takes to get these letters back in the mail stream as quickly as possible".

Media interested in filming or photographing Santa Central can do so by setting up an appointment to enter the workshop.
