Most Canadians want to keep door-to-door delivery

Canada Post’s plan to cut door-to-door delivery is getting the thumbs down from most Canadians, a new poll has found.

A new poll has found that 60% of respondents oppose Canada Post’s plan to replace door-to-door delivery with delivery to a community mailbox.

“The public outcry began the moment these cuts were announced by Canada Post and approved by the Conservatives,” said Denis Lemelin, National President of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. “Lawn signs are going up all across the country. People are organizing. Municipalities are taking action.”

To date, close to 30% of the population have passed resolutions or sent letters in support of door-to-door delivery or opposing the cuts.

In addition, municipal bodies including the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Big City Mayors’ Caucus, representing 22 of the largest cities in Canada and 65% of the country’s population have voiced concerns.

“It’s time for the Conservatives to start listening to people or face the consequences in the upcoming election,” said Lemelin, noting that the Conservatives won the 2011 election with just 39.6 % of the popular vote.
