When do the promises kick in?
From CBC News, October 2015, ad article about Canada Post restoring Charlottetown home delivery, Charlottetown MP Sean Casey stood by the Liberals’ election promise to restore door-to-door mail delivery.
“We committed during the election to save home mail delivery. That remains our commitment,” Casey said. “Our commitment has not been fulfilled ... The next step is for the new government to review the mandate of Canada Post and to fulfil our election commitment to save home delivery, and that’s what we’ll do.”
Your turn at bat, Mr. Casey. Please give us a timeline (in simple English, please) for restoring doorto-door mail delivery. See if you can do it without using the word “committee.”
I don’t see any tax break for walking in all types of weather, trying to open frozen boxes, stopping in no-parking zones or blocking traffic on too-narrow streets. These are dangerous practices, and you promised to get rid of these – when? Are we waiting on injuries, property damage or even possible deaths because your party hasn’t acted on its electoral promise?
Was the Liberal Party of Canada only saying it would restore a service, which we still pay for, only in order to get elected? Are the Liberal government and Canada Post waiting for a class-action suit to be launched under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Door-todoor service for some Canadians and not for others?
As to my next vote: the cheque is in the mail.
