Canadians should be outraged at cuts
The announcement of Canada Post cuts to service was surprising and dramatic.
Door-to-door mail delivery is to be cut and thousands of postal carriers will lose their jobs.
However, all of the senior management at Canada Post will remain in place. This is such blatant hypocrisy it leaves one breathless.
Canadians should be incensed and they should be outraged. But, rather than pointing the finger at retiring baby boomers, as Sandra Steffan does in her letter (The Leader, Dec. 17), our fingers should be squarely pointed at the CEO of Canada Post.
In addition to being Canada Post’s Chief Executive Officer, Deepak Chopra is a member of the board of the Conference Board of Canada. It is the “independent” think tank that has been credited with coming up with the planned cuts.
I don’t call that “independent.” I call it a conflict of interest.
