The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says Canada Post made more than enough profit last year to justify keeping door-to-door delivery.
South Vancouver CUPW President Jennifer Savage says it’s outrageous that the postal operator made over 1-hundred and 96-million dollars, yet they’re still going to cut the service.
“Mail delivery is a public service. It should be something that everybody has the right to have. We have been making money for eighteen out of the last twenty years and any of the money we make over and above goes back into the government. There’s no reason for people to lose their door to door delivery.”
Savage says the planned cancellation of door-to-door services are unfounded.
“With the amount of money that they made – a pretax profit of a hundred and ninety four million dollars, there really isn’t any reason to remove door-to-door delivery from South Vancouver or anywhere else in the country for that matter.”
Savage says she’d like to see Canada Post consult the public more before they do go ahead with the cancellation.
