Letter: Only Trudeau can retain door-to-door delivery

Campaign promises can be slippery things, but this is one promise that needs to be delivered express.

To the editor:

On October 19th we witnessed the historic election of Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party to form a majority government for Canada.

Mr Trudeau made many promises during the campaign, some however, are more time sensitive than others.

In an open letter to Canada’s civil servants on Sept. 25, Mr Trudeau wrote “we will also stop the Harper Conservatives’ plan to end door-to-door mail delivery and ensure Canadians receive the postal service on which they rely”.

As you read this letter communities across Canada are being stripped of this essential service, with Kelowna scheduled to lose mail service in June. Only intervention by the Prime Minister designate can end these cuts.

Campaign promises can be slippery things, but this is one promise that needs to be delivered express.
