Glenn Thibeault invites volunteers to join him Sunday afternoon
Among other changes, Canada Post plans to phase out home delivery of mail, in favour of moving to community mailboxes. In a news release, Thibeault said plenty of Sudburians are upset with the changes.
Thibeault and the volunteers who accompany him will carry petitions for residents to sign, which the MPP will present in the House of Commons later this session.
Canada Post announced in December a five-point plan to reform the way it operates. End home delivery is expected to save the corporation $400 million to $500 million in operating costs once fully implemented. Staffing levels will also be cut by 6,000 to 8,000 workers, mainly through attrition.
Anyone interested in participating should gather at the United Steelworkers Hall, 66 Brady St., at 2 p.m. on Sunday, or call (705) 673-7107 for more information.
