It would seem that Canada Post has deemed it necessary to go to great lengths to try to cut its mail delivery costs. This is at the expense of the public and for the senior citizens, also a potential cause for them to fall in the winter to get that one letter they may or may not get in the mail that day.
I realize many workers walk their routes in all kinds of weather across Canada. We have had postal workers walk the route, other have ridden a bike and now we have a worker who drives the route in a full-size Canada Post van. Canada Post, I assume, pays for the gas and is this cost-effective? I think not.
I suggest before they stop home delivery, they look at other ways to cut costs starting with going back to workers walking the routes and not being given a company van to do so.
