In the 2015 campaign, Justin Trudeau promised to restore home delivery after criticizing a move by the Conservative government to transition to community mailboxes. But now that he has power, home delivery has yet to be restored, and a promised deadline has been missed.
Once taking office, the government already started backing away from restoring home delivery, instead saying a final “decision” would be made during the spring of 2017.
Now, the government isn’t even keeping that promise. They’ve ignored that deadline and now say they will decide about home delivery before the end of 2017.
The head of CUPW – Mike Palecek – ripped the Trudeau government for their inaction. “We’ve given lots of opportunities for this government to get this right, and unfortunately they’ve decided to delay, dither and do nothing,” said Palecek.
As noted in a recent report, the Liberals and NDP campaigned against the move to community mailboxes. Of course, as they have in many other instances, the Trudeau government has acted far differently in office than they did during the election.
Some have pointed out that the Trudeau Liberals are now looking at the same numbers the Conservative government saw, and are reluctant to run Canada Post at a loss. If that’s the case however, they shouldn’t have campaigned against the changes in the first place.
Say one thing, do another
The issue here is not so much the structure of Canada Post, but the rampant dishonesty of the Trudeau government. The distance between how Trudeau campaigned and how he now acts in power is growing by the day, and the broken Canada Post promise will only add to the distrust millions of Canadians feel towards Trudeau and his dishonest government.
