Regan calling for moratorium on cancellation of postal service

Posted on January 14, 2015

January 14, 2015 (Bedford) – Liberal Member of Parliament, Geoff Regan, is urging Canada Post to listen to concerns from customers and put a moratorium on its scheme to cancel home letter delivery.

“I have heard from seniors, people with disabilities and small business owners in my riding who rely on postal mail to pay their bills or receive cheques. This service cut makes it difficult, or even impossible, for them to get their mail regularly,” says Regan.

The Halifax West MP says numerous constituents have also complained that new community mailboxes, which are replacing door-to-door delivery, are being installed in unsafe or inaccessible locations.

He’s holding a town hall meeting on Thursday, January 15 to give people the opportunity to share their concerns about this transition and to put forward suggestions about appropriate locations for community mailboxes. The meeting will be held at 7p.m. at the Bedford Hammonds Plains Community Centre, 202 Innovation Drive in Bedford.

In 2014, Canada Post announced that Bedford and Hammonds Plains would be among the first communities to lose home delivery. Fairview and Clayton Park are scheduled to move to community mailboxes this year.

“Canada Post has failed to conduct meaningful consultation with its employees and customers. As a result, the Crown Corporation has completely misunderstood the impact of this decision on Canadians,” Regan says. “This public meeting will be an opportunity to show Canada Post that accessible mail service is important to people in Halifax West.”

The meeting is open to the public and will be Regan’s 123rd “Let’s Talk” session.
