Canada Post canít burden taxpayers

Canada Post faces a serious financial shortfall. Yet a new Liberal majority report out on the topic from the committee on government operations does nothing to address this serious problem.

(Many Cdns are justified in their fear of doing financial transactions online due to the steadily growing influence of hackers and thus some of us much prefer mailed paper bills for many services!!)

Conservatives strongly believe in Canada Post and its many dedicated workers. It is paramount that we maintain it as a universal service across Canada, particularly in rural areas. However, it must be done in a sustainable manner that does not burden taxpayers.

The committee heard loud and clear that Canadians do not want higher taxes to subsidize Canada Post, yet thatís exactly what the Liberalsí recommendations will do. Canada Post faces annual losses of $700 million within ten years, due to the diminishing letter mail volume, and increasing competition in the parcel delivery sector.

(Logic dictates that a well paid civil service union CAN NEVER COMPETE head to head with a corporation with a non unionized work force and a corporate commitment to keeping costs and wages LOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Canada Post is in an impossible situation with its customer base devolving into a limited number of people who still get paper bills for services- paper which most corporations would like to phase out! Even govt prefers to do most of its business online!! Canada Post is also the option of choice for private companies wanting to send out junk mail flyers and advertising!)

Instead of offering real solutions, Liberal committee members recommended a slew of ineffective and frankly laughable initiatives to pave the way for their haphazard election promises.

(LIE-beral efforts to hire as many civil servants as possible without regard to cost is standard procedure for dictators and despots! By appointing people to positions of privilege- LIE-berals BUY the loyalty of those they hire- and BUY THEIR VOTES at election time!! This explains why govt HOGS earn an average of ONE THIRD MORE than people doing the SAME JOB in the private sector!! This is straight out LIE-beral BRIBERY of select groups of voters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(There are those who will say that being a Postie is no longer a Privilege- but IT IS STILL SUPERIOR to working for the private sector parcel post corps!! LIE-berals have NO interest in snail mail service except as a means of hiring HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!)

Among their more ridiculous recommendations is the Liberalsí desire to develop a Canada Post social network like Facebook, with the integration of their own bitcoin-like currency. Seriously.

(Ah yes- creating a Can/Post social network means an opportunity to rope in white collar workers as well as package hauling grunts!! Think of the opportunities for hiring marketing and financial advisors to handle and regulate the Postie version of Bitcoin!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Do they seriously think what Canadians want is for Canada Post to run an internet based communication service run by a Crown Corporation? ĎYour selfie will be posted in 3 to 5 business days.í

(LIE-berals DO NOT care what ordinary Cdns want!! LIE-berals are focused on loading the civil service gravy train with as many supporters as possible!! As far as LIE-berals are concerned - either you ride the gravy train OR YOU PAY for the Gravy Train!! And if the gravy train runs you over then you are DISMISSED as a Systemic Racist or an Islamophobe!! Meaning you are impossibly HOSTILE to LIE-beral values!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The Liberal committee members even surmised that the dropping volume of letter mail over the years is not due to the rise of use of the internet, but rather because of the inconvenience of using the new community mailboxes.

(AS mentioned- I LIKE GETTING paper bills for my various services!! But the fact remains I DO NOT use Canada Post to deliver my payments in return!! I find that ANY BILL payment I mail back is always LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The truth is that I CANNOT PROVE whether it is Canada Post causing delays or if the companies I do business with have a special box that they drop snail mail payments into for a week or two until they can be deemed as ďlate paymentsĒ and unfairly blame Canada Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(It is common knowledge that paper bills mailed out to customers is a DYING Business!! Online crap with automatic withdrawal is MUCH PREFERRED by most companies!! So do they accept payment by online method first - and get over to process snail mail whenever other work is slow???????????????????)

(Such selfish corporate prioritizing of payment processing seems the likely explanation for why my snail mailed payment is ALWAYS a few days late!!!!!!!!!)

It gets better: the Liberal report then calls for the subsidization of international mail delivery into Canada via, you guessed it, you the taxpayer. Thatís right, subsidies to people in foreign countries to mail to Canada, on your dime.

(In more recent news- Yankee president Trump has made moves to even up the international mail playing field- that had offered nations like China a BARGAIN RATE- subsidized by western mail users!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And now we have LIE-berals offering to INCREASE that western subsidy to the Beijing Bullies!! There is no sacrifice that LIE-berals think we should make in exchange for getting more HOGS onto the Gravy Train!! And Our idiot Boy continues his disgraceful love affair with Red China- at our expense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The Committee on Government Operations surveyed stakeholders across the country to listen to their concerns and suggestions on the future of Canada Post. Unfortunately, instead of listening to facts and providing real solutions, over half of the recommendations made in the majority report are value statements, or existing Canada Post practices.

(One has to ask if subsidizing international mail to Canada would mean we would be subsidizing the likes of Amazon?? With Amazon already neatly avoiding the costs of having actual bricks and mortar buildings in Canada!! Is it logical to use taxes from Cdns and from their LOCAL EMPLOYERS - to subsidize BOTH foreign biz- and the HOG Postie unions that serve them????????????????)

A generous review of the majority report will reveal that only 18 of the 45 recommendations were actionable. Less than half. And even then, those remaining 18 include ludicrous ideas.

Itís very clear that the Liberals on the committee decided what they wanted to recommend, regardless of what Canadians had to say.

(LIE-berals want to buy votes- and getting votes from HOGS is less controversial than importing hordes of illegals as LIE-berals have been doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made promises he canít keep, like bringing back complete door-to-door mail delivery. This Liberal report serves as filler to avoid discussing the impact that these promises will have on Canada Postís revenue and the Canadian taxpayer.

And thatís the major problem. Canada Post needs actual solutions to ensure its sustainability in the short- and long-term, or taxpayers will pay the price.

(I suggest that Cdn tax payers are ALREADY PAYING A PRICE!! One has only to watch the tv commercials about credit cards with built in online FRAUD PROTECTION to realize that online fraud is a PLAGUE!! And yet ever more Businesses- including our own govt want us ONLINE- WITHOUT offering any real protection from FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Conservatives advocated evidence-based solutions that empower Canada Post to manage its future, and make decisions to remain sustainable and maintain service to Canadians. But we were ignored. Unfortunately, you are going to pay the price.

Itís disappointing that months of work, hundreds of hours of testimony, and the hard work of the House Committee staff have been cast aside in favour of reality-defying rhetoric and political pandering.

(Lets get real here and recognize that the mere existence of that committee was political pandering- since LIE-berals can now tell us how they DID LISTEN to public concerns and are committed to achieving best results!! It is up to ANGRY voters to recognize that ďbest resultsĒ MEAN BEST FOR LIE-berals -and TO HELL WITH THE PUBLIC COST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The Liberal report is a failure. Canadians donít need empty, unnecessary, and expensive promises. Canadians deserve results.

(Yes- and things may change just as soon as Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals are force to look at stark reality in the October election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
