Canada Post announced drastic cutbacks to the public postal service in Canada in December, 2013.

This not only included plans to end home delivery in various locations across the country but also possible post office closures in rural and small towns such as Fort St. James.

Due to the public’s negative response to these cutbacks, the current Liberal party has halted the delivery cuts and is currently conducting a Canada Post Review.

The review began earlier this year with an independent task force which is currently helping identify options for the future of postal service in Canada.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers would like to ensure that all views in all municipalities are considered during the each stage of the Canada Post Review.

The public is being urged to fill out the parliamentary committee’s online survey from Sept. 26 to Oct. 21 at parl.gc.ca/OGGO-e

Fort St. James Councillor, Kris Nielsen says that it’s so important that people do go online and fill out the survey.

“It’s so easy to do. I don’t want to see another service in the community go and all of the jobs attached to it,” Nielsen said.
