Save Canada Post
December 11th, 2013 - 9:00am
In December 2013, the Harper government announced cuts as well as price hikes at Canada Post, which saw the price of stamps rise to as high as $1, and which reduced Canada Post's workforce by 8,000 jobs. Worst of all, the cuts mean that Canada Post will end door-to-door delivery over the next few years, removing service from over 5,000,000 Canadian households.
Cutting service and raising prices is no way to run a business; nor is it a way to run a vital government service that has turned almost $2 billion in profits over the last twenty years, and which millions of Canadians depend upon.
Nathan and the NDP have vowed to fight this change in Parliament. You can watch a clip of Nathan standing up for Canada Post in the House of Commons here, or sign onto the petition demanding that the government reverse its cuts to Canada Post here.
