Re: Keep us posted on party lines, Sept. 4 letters.
While there’s no doubt that it will be inconvenient when we no longer have our mail delivered to our door, I think it’s the price we have to pay – or the cost we have to avoid – for the change.
According to the CP web page, our postal service operated at a net loss over the past four years; a loss of $253 million in 2011 and another loss of $269 million in 2013, against profits of $98 million and $86 million in 2012 and 2014 respectively, for a loss of $348 million since 2011. Perhaps letter-writer Kathie Hill will tell us where she learnt of the $200 million “posted” profit?
Lest anyone wonder, I have no vested interest in the politics or business of Canada Post, other than using the service to very occasionally send and receive mail.
