I think it`s disgraceful that Stephen Harper is assaulting home delivery mail service, assaulting workers..
1 day after parliament closes in Ottawa Stephen Harper`s draconian Government announces the assault on Canada Post..
Let me be very clear, postal workers are part of the economy, they buy coffee and lunch, they also report suspicious activities..
The RCMP cost taxpayers money, Fire departments cost money, mowing public parks, guarding our coastlines, zooming around the Arctic on stealth snowmobiles cost money...This is the price we pay to have a civilized society....
Writing skills are on the decline in Canada, just look at Michael Smyth, it can`t decline much more than that..who needs paper and pen?..We do..
How much does one hip replacement cost?...Making seniors wander off to community mail boxes in the rain and snow, a place where they will be watched and targeted...
We will be the only country in the G8 without home mail delivery..
We are first...People get credit cards, drivers licenses mailed out, these communal urban(in the city) multi mail boxes will be where?...
Will they be in front of your house?...Your neighbours house, ...Canada Post has made a statement that procurement of multi communal mail boxes and the locales are already underway...Boy that was fast...What does a multi-communal mail box do for the property value of the home they will be placed in front of...All hours of the day people will be driving up for their mail, 24/7..365 days a year..
Unless these communal boxes are placed in barren areas?...That doesn`t sound very safe...
And there is something else that no one has mentioned, something that may be at the very heart of the matter..
Voting is on the decline in Canada, seniors make the effort, readers of The Straight Goods make the effort but young people don`t..They need constant reminding, and young people use more electronic mail than most..
What about voting cards, voter registration cards...With robo-call election fraud, with Kash Heed breaking election laws, with the BC Liberal party complicit at election fraud..
With Stephen Harper`s Conservative party complicit at election fraud and voter suppression...
My gut tells me that there is real potential for voter suppression with this ill-founded idea of ending home delivery..
Seems to me that this is an effort to keep voting cards out of the hands of young voters and even if not, this can`t be good for increasing voting numbers in general..
Which is exactly what this post is all about..
And let`s not forget about that Translink referendum..
What voter cards, what voter registration cards...What robo-calls..What misdirection..
Tory staffer Michael Sona bragged about robocalls that attempted to prevent people from voting, witnesses told investigator
Get ready for a snap Federal spring election
