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.

  • Canada Post is an essential public service. We cannot rely on the delivery of mail and packages based solely on the whims of the private sector. There is no private letter delivery service because no private company can complete with Canada Post. If it was possible, it would be done. Canada cannot move mail without the stability of service and price a public institution provides.

  • Instead of creating expanded service, Canada Post has made the decision emasculate the post office and destroy a service that has been ongoing for approximately 140 years.

  • A national postal system with full services is a fair and reasonable expectation for all Canadians. The Harper government seeks to destroy yet another public service that binds the nation together,
  • This is the most significant fight for the rention of public services in a generation.
  • There’s no reason to make these cuts. CPC is profitable and not funded by taxpayers dollars!
  • Canada Post has not dealt honestly with its customers, its employers, or even its own data and statistics.

    Such is the damage wrought by its incompetent management that a once-profitable public corporation is now effectively insolvent.

    There needs to be more clarity and more accountability to the Canadian people. Reform of this cherished institution will undoubtedly be painful, and we have already heard the Corporation’s solutions and opinions by business and by customers—however, nothing should be done without hearing and respecting the opinions and experience of Canada Post’s workforce. They have been the ones who made Canada Post a success in the past, and their knowledge and expertise is the key to making it a success again.
  • 8000 fewer taxpayers contributing to the common good, 8000 families stressed and frightened about the future
  • The public is not going to stand behind you this time.
  • Remember, who are the people in your neighborhood. We are when you are at work and holidays, making sure that your house and neighborhood are safe.
