Postal Worker David Rennie, who works in a Hamilton Ontario postal centre, shows in an op-ed piece that Canada Post is sending home delivery service to the chopping block without the support of facts. Rennie says in the Hamilton Spectator that, “Scare stories, reported in the media, about financial losses, declining letter mail and employee pension difficulties are used as justification by senior Canada Post management and the federal government to bring in the unpopular changes. These changes include end of residential mail delivery, the elimination of up to 8,000 good-paying unionized jobs and dramatic rate increases of up to a dollar for basic letter postage.
“Many Canadians conclude — wrongly — that Canada Post is a drain on the public purse, with taxpayers bailing out the service annually.
“Nothing could be further from the truth.”
