Millions of Canadian residents would be directly affected by planned cuts to door-to-door mail delivery by the Conservative government, and Friends of Public Services is tackling this election issue head on. Canada Post's door to door delivery to the next level, help defeat the Conservatives, and make sure that Canada Post stays in public hands.
The web site has tools to help people across Canada take action and organize together to stop the cuts to door to door:
The campaign aims to mobilize volunteers in ridings where the Conservatives are vulnerable, and where postal services have been recently cut back. After October 19th, Friends of Public Services will work to ensure that whoever wins the election reinstates door to door delivery.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
