Add your voice to the Postal Review

A Harper-era appointee at Canada Post, named Deepak Chopra, has refused to step down, and is moving forward on his plan to cut our postal services. We can stop him if you take action right now.

We know that Chopra used to be an industry lobbyist and supports cutting services and raising prices for all of us.[1] We can’t let that happen.

Let me be clear: The government has an opportunity to not only stop the cuts, but to use our postal service to build a more equitable, sustainable economy in Canada.[2]  

We’re joining a range of organizations to put forward an innovative plan to use our postal network to address our country’s climate and economic challenges, with a made-in-Canada electric fleet, postal banking, green infrastructure, and community services.

The government can either cave to Harper appointed lobbyists, or embrace a 21st century vision for Canada’s postal service. If enough of us speak out they’ll have no choice but to listen. Canada Post is profitable today, and has been for most of the past two decades.That’s why Chopra and his cronies want to exploit this valuable public resource.  Let’s not let that happen.

The deadline to get on the public record is July 31st!  Please add your voice before it’s too late.
