We deliver a service that makes all our lives better, at no cost to taxpayers. Canada Post management and the Harper government are putting all this […]
From right or left, cuts to Canada Post don’t make sense.

“Yes, Canada Post must modernize in order to meet challenges facing the postal service, but not at the expense, safety and needs of its customers. It appears Canada Post is more concerned with increased cost cutting rather than properly serving Canadians. Where is the validity to trim thousands of jobs and end home delivery services when the Crown Corporation has run a profit over the last 20 years?”- The P.E.I. Guardian, December 2, 2014
“Despite the fact Canada Post has been profitable in 17 of the past 18 years, earned more than $1.5 billion in profits in the past decade alone, and has a pension plan which is fully-funded on a going-concern basis, our government claimed they had no choice but to gut it.I suppose the lesson here is that the big banks have better lobbyists than do citizens. Or perhaps it was an ideological urge to slash public services that drove this decision, facts be damned.”- Toronto Star, February 19, 2014
“Many private sector, for profit, companies would envy the performance of Canada Post over the past 17 years compared to the way they actually performed during tough economic times…it has exceeded that for many years while delivering a valuable public service – which is still much needed. All options have not been considered and adequate public consultation has not been implemented.”- Hamilton Spectator, January 10, 2014
