The response to PAN’s Aug. 26 editorial on Canada Post (Honour system is cheaper) is so mean-spirited, I wonder if the letter writer has parents, grandparents or elderly relatives. The letter suggests punishing the elderly if they want to stay in their “single family” residence and perhaps get mail delivery in the future.
Have they not paid taxes all their lives? Is it not known that health experts encourage seniors to stay in their own homes as long as possible?
