NDP hos­ting Canada Post mee­ting Fri­day

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Alexandre Bou­le­rice, the NDP MP for Ro­se­mont-La Pe­tite Pa­trie and cri­tic for Canada Post, will host an in­for­ma­tion eve­ning this Fri­day be­gin­ning at 7 p.m., at the Vau­dreuil-Do­rion Mul­ti­sport com­plex, lo­ca­ted at 3093, bou­le­vard de la Gare.

And Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes NDP MP Ja­mie Nicholls will join Bou­le­rice du­ring the May 16 event that or­ga­ni­zers say will fo­cus on the Conser­va­tive go­vern­ment’s plan to end home mail de­li­ve­ry ser­vices, the im­pact the changes may have on ci­ti­zens, and mea­sures that can be ta­ken to change the si­tua­tion.

Nicholls feels the is­sue is a prio­ri­ty for Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes re­si­dents. “Close to a thou­sand ci­ti­zens have al­rea­dy writ­ten to us to save Canada Post,” he said, ad­ding he feels the strong op­po­si­tion “proves that people are at­ta­ched to their pos­tal ser­vices and that they sup­port our ef­forts.”

In a press re­lease, Bou­le­rice said re­sis­tance to the cut is be­co­ming more or­ga­ni­zed. He said those at­ten­ding Fri­day’s mee­ting will come away with se­ve­ral tools to help them get in­vol­ved while for­cing the go­vern­ment to back down.
