Postal banking a way to preserve Canada Post

The government is currently conducting a public review of Canada Post.

The government is currently conducting a public review of Canada Post. This is definitely the moment for us to speak up about what we want from our postal service.

After years of service cuts and price increases it is time to try a new and different approach. The Delivering Community Power proposal calls for postal banking (my first bank account while growing up in England) and services for seniors. A postal bank is an affordable, local solution that can also invest in the community. Dozens of countries around the world have postal banking that is profitable and very successful and there is no reason we can’t do the same.

Our present postal service is profitable and has been for most of the past two decades. Why not improve on it with more services, rather than more cutbacks and elimination of services? As a Crown corporation all of us own Canada Post and it’s time for us to be heard,
