Parliamentary Committee recommends end to Community Mailboxes in Charlottetown

cp

Yesterday, the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates released their report on Canada Post.

The Committee has been studying Canada Post and its viability for the past several months. I had the pleasure of testifying before the Committee when it met in Charlottetown in October, where I urged the members to ensure that the Government keep its promise to save home mail delivery.

It seems the Committee got the message. It recommended that:

“Canada Post continue the moratorium on community mailboxes conversion, and develop a plan to re-instate door-to-door delivery for communities that were converted after 3 August 2015.” [p. 90]

As you know, Charlottetown was converted to community mailboxes on October 25th, 2015 –  six days after the federal election and just one day before the moratorium was announced. I expressed my anger at the time, and I continue to convey your frustration with Charlottetown’s status as a city without home mail delivery. I remain committed to seeing Charlottetown return to home mail delivery – and continue to push that point whenever I have the chance to bend the Minister’s ear.
