Dear Mr. Lukiwski: I have attached CUPW’s promised critique of the discussion paper that was produced by the Canada Post Review Task Force. As you will see from this document, the Task Force’s paper misrepresents the financial realities of Canada Post as well as other matters. It uses very selective information and omits important developments that will dramatically impact the future of our public postal service. The paper also gets some basic facts wrong.

The federal government is conducting a review of Canada Post. It says everything but postal privatization is on the table.  

Tuesday August 2 2016
The federal government appointed an independent task force earlier this year to identify options for the future of Canada Post. It said that everything but postal privatization would be on the table.

Dear Mr, Lukiwski: I understand that the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates will hold e-consultations and public hearings in various locations in connection with the Canada Post Review. I also understand it has decided not to accept briefs or submissions, which is normal practice for committees. CUPW would like to request that the Committee reconsider its decision and allow Canadians to make submissions. We believe this would open up the consultations to people who will not be able to participate in the Committee’s main vehicle for input, the online survey. Close to 20% of Canadians do not have access to the Internet (Source: Statistics Canada, 2012).

Dear Minister Foote: It is our understanding that the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates has asked committee members for witness suggestions for the public consultations being held this fall in connection with the Canada Post Review. It appears that they were asked on July 13th to send suggestions by July 19th. This is not a reasonable amount of time. Also, it is not clear whether anyone other than committee members will be allowed to make witness suggestions.

Canada Post delivers billions of letters and parcels to homes and businesses every year. Many Canadians consider it a trusted and valuable service. But did you know that home mail delivery is the most environmentally friendly way of moving letters and parcels from sender to receiver? And it’s greener when it’s done five or six days a week.

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.
