Yesterday’s election in Canada may mean the end for Canada Post’s plans to convert five million addresses from door-to-door delivery to cluster boxes.
After a decade in power, the Conservatives were routed in a landslide by Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party. The Liberals had previously vowed to end the conversions and to conduct a thorough review of Canada Post. On their website, the Liberals say this:
“We will stop the Harper Conservatives’ plan to end door-to-door mail delivery in Canada. We will begin a new review of Canada Post to ensure that the Crown Corporation is fulfilling its public mandate to provide high-quality service at a reasonable cost to Canadians — urban, suburban, and rural. We disagree strongly with the Conservative decision to ask Canadians to pay more for a reduced quality of service.”
