A long-time employee of Canada Post was fired after a delivery truck trailer was left unaccounted for overnight.

Brock Joubarne worked as a dispatcher with the crown corporation since 2003. On Oct. 2, 2016, Joubarne began his shift at an Ottawa mail processing plant.

According to the scan-to-vehicle sheet (STV), a trailer arrived at the loading dock at 9:39 a.m. and it was unloaded immediately. The load included several high-priority delivery items.
