Dear Mr. Chopra, As you are no doubt aware, the city of Fort McMurray has been ravaged by fire. Many have lost everything. As people begin to return to their homes, the relief effort will turn to a rebuilding effort. We are heartened to hear that the post office is still intact. We would like you to consider how Canada Post can be used to aid in the relief effort. We are aware of unused trucks sitting in Edmonton which could be immediately deployed for logistical support. In addition, we believe Canada Post could provide free shipping to Fort McMurray of for a period of months following the fire.

As well, nearly two million Canadians desperately need an alternative to payday lenders. A postal bank could be that alternative. Download and sign the petition urging the Government of Canada to instruct Canada Post to add postal banking, with a mandate for financial inclusion.
