Re: Mailboxes targeted again, Aug. 28.

Your news article gave me pause to question who among the federal political parties supports the continuation of home delivery.

This concerns me because the article states “damage to and theft from a pair of mailboxes near 26 Avenue” was reported on Aug. 17. The article further states that the RCMP didn’t even attend the scene.

This is another worry to those of us threatened with the loss of home mail delivery.

After writing to all the parties, my friend was answered by only the NDP. Their position is that an NDP government will cancel Canada Post’s controversial plan to eliminate door-to-door mail delivery and reinstate delivery in all communities affected by the cuts announced in December 2013.

The other parties did not respond.

Canada Post has been profitable since the mid-’90s and last year posted a profit of $200 million. They could handily increase their profits even while maintaining door-to-door delivery.

When Canada Post finishes eliminating door-to-door service, Canada will be the only G7 country without any home mail delivery. Another riches-to-rags story.

Can the Peace Arch News or any readers tell those of us who vote how the other political parties will direct Canada Post?
