Letters to the Editor

Postal cuts show lack of support for Canada's nation builders

Editor: The federal government announced on Dec. 11 that they are phasing out door-to-door letter delivery service.

My mother and father, aged 90 and 91, would have to walk to a letter box once this plan comes to fruition.

Meanwhile, seniors and disabled people are being held under  “house arrest” by cuts to HandyDart service hours.

It seems that both the provincial  and federal governments are more concerned about buying helicopters, corporate tax breaks and P3 mega projects than providing support for those who built this country
