Canada Post workers are continuing their fight to stop plans to halt home delivery service, with a symbolic door-to-door delivery in north shore St-Eustache.
The union and the NDP organized the mass delivery of about 5000 messages including post cards and buttons supporting home delivery service and denouncing Canada Post's plans. The buttons say, "I love my mail carriers, Harper hates them," referring to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
They chose St-Eustache because they fear it'll be next on the chopping block after places such as Rosemère, Lorraine, Bois-des-Filion, Repentigny and Charlemagne, which will lose delivery service starting this fall.
Union spokesman Alain Duguay said they've been receiving steady support from the public, telling them the same message.
"It's the first country in the world in the G-8 which will take such an avenue and it's really bad for the population, especially for the older population and people who have functional limitations," Duguay told CJAD 800 NEWS.
More symbolic deliveries are planned in the next several weeks in Terrebonne and Rosemont.
