I do wish people would get their facts straight before letting fly in the Roasts and Toasts.
The anonymous correspondent blasting away at city council and the postal workers in Monday’s paper was misinformed in whole and in part.
In point of fact, Canada Post has operated at a profit in all but two of the past 22 years while, at the same time, paying over $1.4 billion in taxes and dividends into the federal government coffers.
Additionally, while the numbers of letters being mailed has been declining, the number of parcels being delivered has been increasing at a phenomenal rate.
The post office, as a self-sustaining public service, is still alive and far healthier than some, including Canada Post management, for reasons known only to themselves, would have you believe.
The city council’s decision was based on solid information and their best judgment as to what was in the interests of the citizens of Lethbridge.
