The NDP Will Reinstate Door-To-Door Mail Delivery
An NDP Government will cancel Canada Post’s plan to eliminate door-to-door mail delivery and will reinstate delivery in all communities affected by cuts announced in December 2013.
"This is about fairness. The cuts to home delivery impact seniors and persons living with disabilities the most. For them, this service is essential," commented NDP spokesperson for matters concerning Canada Post, Alexandre Boulerice (Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie).
For the past year and a half, Canada Post has been implementing a sweeping, five-year plan designed to end door-to-door mail delivery for 5.1 million Canadian households.
‘Mayors from towns and villages of the riding have complained about this decision through resolutions,” adds Compton-Stanstead New Democrat MP Jean Rousseau. “We heard them.”
“The government told us from the start that the decision to end home mail delivery is a financial one, but this is not true. Last year, Canada Post made $200 million in net profits. Let’s put ideology aside and provide the services that Canadians rely on," added Mr. Boulerice.
New Democrats are listening. Reinstating home delivery mail service will help those in greatest need.
