Deepak Chopra, Mike Palecek

Despite making money in the first quarter of 2015 and despite posting an overall pre-tax profit of $194 million in 2014, Canada Post is still forging ahead with plans to install community mailboxes in communities across the country, effectively bringing an end to door-to-door mail delivery.
ChopraDeepak Chopra (president and CEO of Canada Post):
What we are trying to do is avoid becoming a burden on taxpayers for hundreds of millions of dollars if we don’t act responsibly now.
We don’t want to wait until the problem has become so severe that the initiatives we will be forced to take would be even more difficult.
Our plan is well thought out and we would like to continue to focus on our priorities.
PalecekMike Palecek (national representative of Canadian Union of Postal Workers):
This corporation belongs to Canadians. And there’s been a rising tide of opposition to what you’re doing.
When are you going to listen to the owners of Canada Post and scrap this ridiculous plan?

    カナダで郵便の戸別配達が廃止へ!!地域に設置されたメールボックスに個人が取りに行くことに!?

    カナダ郵便公社は11日、都市部で行っている郵便の戸別配達を今後5年以内に廃止すると発表しました。深刻化する赤字の削減が目的で、郵便料金を値上げする方針も示されました。

    同社は、電子メールの普及拡大を受け、郵便の取扱量が激減し、米郵政公社と同様に赤字が深刻化。戸別配達の廃止に伴い、従業員も6000~8000人削減されます。

    カナダでは現在、全体の3分の1に当たる約510万世帯で戸別配達が行われています。同社の計画では、地域ごとに設置された集合型メールボックスに配達されるシステムに切り替わるといいます。

    手紙が電子化され、現在では電子メールや電話でのやり取りが大半となっているため、どんどん旧来の郵便システムは不要なものとなっていくのかもしれません。
