Now we know why the cuts to Canada Post just announced are so surprising and dramatic. The Crown Corporation's CEO is on the board of the think-tank that suggested we cut door-to-door mail deliveries, eliminate thousands of our mailmen, but keep all of the senior management at Canada Post.
There is something fishy here. You can’t hire and take advice from a think-tank and call it "independent" when you sit on the think-tank's board -- especially if you are cutting thousands of jobs, yet keeping the executive team intact. Before Canada Post makes such dramatic steps to eliminate thousands of mailmen and dramatically cut services for Canadians, the Crown Corporation needs to come clean. Demand that Canada Post stop its cost cutting plans and call for an investigation on this possible conflict of interest.
Canada Post: Stop the elimination of jobs, continue hand deliveries, and conduct a full investigation into the CEO's conflict of interest.
