Current rabble poll

What do you want to see in Canada's postal system?

The Liberal government announced today that it will be launching a formal review of Canada Post, which will include such issues as whether door-to-door delivery will remain.

The corporation first announced in December 2013 it would phase out home delivery in urban areas -- resulting in up to 8,000 jobs being cut -- along with other changes.

The anouncement was met with ire from most, including CUPW and grassroots organizations, calling it "another case of a Harper-driven impoverishment of an essential service."

Trudeau campaigned on a promise to restore home delivery, and in October 2015 the plan to replace home delivery was suspended.

Judy Foote explained that the Liberals' review process will include Canadian's feedback on the national system and that they are not "ruling out anything."
