The Conservative-led cuts to door to door imposed self-serve mailboxes on communities, with many negative effects, including:
- increased theft
- reduced accessibility for seniors
- new municipal costs
- traffic congestion
- increased pollution and litter
...among other issues!
Meanwhile, postal workers and a broad coalition of civil society groups have backed a bold plan to expand services and make the post office a driver of the climate-friendly economy.
The Liberal government promised to restore door to door during the 2015 federal election. Now, a Parliamentary committee has recommended restoring service in the areas that lost it in the last round of cuts again.
The Liberals have some trouble with their promises, but they should keep this one.
Sign today to send a message to Justin Trudeau: keep your word, and mandate expanded services to keep Canada Post healthy and publicly owned!
