Community mailbox protester Henry Evans-Tenbrinke is Hamilton and District’s Retiree of the Year.The Award was given in recognition of Henry’s endeavours in opposing the installation of Community Mailboxes by “camping out” on a CMB pad, along with his dog Albert, during the Summer of 2015, thereby denying the installation of CMB’s along Brucedale Avenue in Hamilton.

The one man [and dog] protest served as a model for other activists across Ontario and Canada highlighting citizen anger about the termination of home mail delivery. Henry’ protest created local, provincial, national and international media coverage.
