From the Groundspeak forums:

If you plan on attaching a cache to Canada Post property, be it mail boxes, pick up boxes and such, please provide the permission from the local post master or your cache will not be listed. Recently I spoke to my post master, attaching anything to Canada Post boxes can be considered mail tampering and is a Federal Offense. Personally I would not want to spend jail time over a micro cache, but I have been getting more and more of these. If you own the mailbox that is at the end of your driveway, from what I understand, this is your property and you can attach a cache to that box. But if it is a community mail box that is owned by Canada Post, then no. All it will take is a neighbour to complain that strangers are poking around the boxes to cause a problem with a cacher being charged. If they don't have a mailbox there, then they should not be poking around the mail boxes. With the amount of identity theft and cheque theft, do we really want to get mixed up into that over a cache?

I know there are a few of those around, so if you are the owner of this type of hide, you should remove it and archive the listing.
