A few months ago postal workers warned Canada Post that transferring locally sorted mail unnecessarily to Vancouver for sorting would cause weather related delays and risks.
Last Monday night a Canada Post contract truck full of mail that used to be sorted in the local communities of Kamloops, Merritt, Chase, Salmon Arm, Clearwater, Revelstoke, etc. drove off the Coquihalla highway into the Coquihalla River. As far as we know it’s still there or floating down the river.
There are dozens of Canada Post employees working in their communities that have sorted that local mail for decades.
The Canada Post and Conservative agenda of transferring local mail and local jobs to Vancouver didn’t make sense then and doesn’t make sense now.
The proof is in the river.
