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.

Dear Minister Foote: I am writing to inquire about the status of the Canadian Postal Service Charter. It appears that the Charter has been archived on the government’s website. As you know, the Canadian Postal Service Charter spells out Canada Post’s universal service obligation, which includes five day a week delivery and a moratorium on post office closures in rural and small towns.

Dear Minister Foote: The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is not at all surprised that Sian Matthews, the current Chair of Canada Post’s Board of Directors, would reject your government’s call for Canada Post President and CEO Deepak Chopra to step aside.

Support Postal Banking - Download and Sign the Petition

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. 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.
