How seriously did Canada Post consider people less mobile than they

CanadaPostPetition

Susan Dixon has started a petition:

Has anyone at Canada Post ever tried to to push a stroller or a wheelchair or a walker through the snow? I don’t think they realize the impact of ending door-to-door mail delivery when it comes to the parents of young children, to the disabled, and to the elderly, especially in winter…

Did the government or Canada Post really consider how people in difficult circumstances might be affected? I am the mother of two young boys. My youngest has cerebral palsy and uses a walker or wheelchair to get around. For me, Canada Post’s decision would mean having to bundle them up and struggle through the snow with a wheelchair just to get our mail. And I am just one of thousands of Canadians who must already overcome mobility challenges on a daily basis.

That’s why I started this petition urging Canada Post to reconsider the plan to end door-to-door delivery, and think about how all Canadians would be affected. Please sign it and share it with your friends.

Remember Canada Post?

Barring some unexpected last minute breakthrough, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers is set to strike Canada Post in about 75 minutes. Amazing these organizations could both think it clever to remind Canadians how much their importance has shrunk in 30 years.

Here’s how a really cool national postal service communicates.
