Stop service cuts at Canada Post

Instead of looking for ways to modernize operations, Canada Post and the Conservatives are taking an axe to long-treasured postal services – killing good jobs, eliminating home delivery, cutting rural post office hours and drastically increasing postage rates. 

6,000 to 8,000 workers will lose their jobs and five million households will lose home delivery over the next five years. Worse yet, no real consultation was done by Canada Post, effectively eliminating any opportunity for input from the people who will be most affected.

By cutting services, it is possible that Canada Post will drive away customers and raise the costs. Canada Post offers a public service that needs to be protected. 

I oppose the cuts to services recently announced by Canada Post

  • this is a services elderly people count on and disabled people who can’t get out need and what about the crime rate in areas you are just going to add to this problem and vandalism is bad at good times what do you think is going to happen poor example of things being investigated before being put in place or they just don’t care about people which is surprising lol
  • Stop service cuts to Canada Post! Not every citizen has mobility like the CEO’s of Canada Post In their Cadillacs
  • Door to door is a right not a privilege.
  • Harpers got to go
  • Thisnwill be tough to re-institute, once it’s gone. Very sad to see this hi-jacking being implemented.
  • stop cuts
  • Give them their pension money. All of it. With accrued interest.
  • Empty the offices and deliver the mail!
  • Among other complaints, astonished that this was not a matter for broad public consultation!
  • We’re only the Western country planning to abolish home delivery.The administrators of Canada Post have squandered billions of the Canadian taxpayer’s money on automation and inefficient

    home delivery trucks.The Federal Government has also blocked the Post Office from offering internet banking services to compete with the banks. The problem is not with home delivery but with a totally incompetent Canada Post Administration that serves itself but not the Public and a right wing Federal Conservative Government that serves big business and ignores the interests of the average Canadian and the impovershed.
  • It is obvious that the conservatives have been engineering a false entry in the balance sheet of Canada Post so they can fulfill their dream of elderly and disabled Canadians struggling through snow drifts to pick up the bills they have to pay more to receive in the mail, and so their buddies in the corporate world can share the wealth that we will never see.
  • This will impact our communities not in a good way by eliminating 6000-8000 employees with good jobs. and drive away customers thus raising the costs. This is a public service that needs to be protected.
