Come and join us to discuss about the elmination of door-to-door mail delivery in your area
(N6H and N6G).
Litter, theft, snow removal, property values, people with disabilities. These are all issues that will be discussed.
Canada Post recently reported a $194 million dollar profit for 2014 but they still plan on cutting door-to-door mail service.
As Canada Post acknowledges, these profits are built on growth in parcels, postage rate increase, and
reduced benefit costs for workers. The profits are not credited to door-to-door delivery cuts.
“It’s time for Canada Post to truly listen to the people.”
