Ruth (71) must spend 22 hours a week to get the mail

Ruth pension funds confederation of staying in Reinfjorden in Kvænangen municipality in Troms. From 1. april she must to stay on a journey of 12 and 10 hours two times in a week to get the mail.

I comprehend not what they're doing. We can't just leave house and home, but it is the closest uninhabitable here, she says to Dagbladet.

It was the Norwegian broadcasting corporation, which first publicized the case.


In an increasingly digital society, sent most of the mail today electronic. The changes in norway Post's distribution happens as a result of that it is become too costly to deliver mail to the little wooded villages, such as Reinfjorden.

Because the Mail no longer going to deliver mail to the village, citizens must go by boat to the Burfjord to collect and deliver letters and parcels. The boat goes twice a week.

the Officer in the Post, John Eckhoff, says to Dagbladet that brevmengden has declined by 65 percent since 1999, which was the year we sent the most letters here in the country. He says that norway Post is continuously working to kostnadstilpasse offer when the demand for their services drops.

- We have in this case made a review about it to maintain mail delivery to these wooded communities are unreasonably costly. Then open the rules for that it can be done exceptions from the provisions on distance from the household to the point of delivery, " says Eckhoff.

pension funds confederation of explaining that she is one of ten residents in the small village, in addition to those that have cabins in the area. With the exception of the ability to peek a little in the shops and make a kafébesøk or two, going 71-year-old to use most of the time in a waiting room, before the boat returns late afternoon. The journey will also cost her several hundred dollars, " she explains.

Fear avfolking 550 lose their jobs in the Post: - This is not the last nedbemanningen

pension funds confederation of fear that the Troms and Finnmark will become almost uninhabited in the future, if development continues. In the villages Reinfjorden it is difficult to get people to settle, which she believes is due to a bad distriktspolitikk.

- It is too heavy to stay here, it's a battle the whole time. We didn't get to the road we were promised a time in time, so we have to use a snowmobile to get us up, " she says and continues:

We have so plenty of space up here, but it is the closest avfolket.

to avoid to make bad to worse in respect of population figures, hope she is still in the Mail should choose to turn in its decision.

member of parliament and member of Parliament's transport and kommunikasjonskomité, Sverre Myrli, stated to NRK that they believe it is caused by vrangvilje from the Record and the authorities about those in the future can find a solution to get transported mail to where people live. It believes Eckhoff is completely wrong.

- This has nothing with vrangvilje to do. It is a consequence of the digitization of society. Consequences of the digitalization that affects the Email is not willed, but one development we are going to have to deal with, " he says.
