Liberals must keep promise to save home mail delivery

The Minister responsible for Canada Post, Judy Foote, announced today that her government won’t be restoring home mail delivery in its entirety. This contradicts the Liberals’ promise during the election campaign.

“Barely a month into their mandate, the Liberals are backtracking on their promises. That’s not the kind of change Canadians voted for,” said NDP Canada Post critic Karine Trudel (Jonquière). “The Minister must deliver on their promise and restore home mail delivery.”

Since last year, hundreds of thousands of families have lost their door-to-door delivery. They are now learning that the Liberal government will not restore the service. But just last September at Montreal’s city hall, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to restore home mail delivery.

“People expect a certain level of service from their government – that’s what the Prime Minister said at the time. Now it seems the government is backtracking on its promises. Canadians will be disappointed,” said Trudel. “Canadians can count on the NDP, the progressive opposition, to hold the Liberal government to account and ensure that it delivers on its promises.”
