Save Canada Post! Toronto Town Hall Meeting

Monday, January 20, 2014



Fri. Jan. 24 @ 7:00pm
31 Wellesley St. E. (across the street from Wellesley subway station)


Our postal service is under attack by Harper’s Conservatives. Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post, has announced cuts to home delivery and 6,000-8,000 layoffs. His response, when asked about the implications of cutting home mail delivery for elders, was that the elderly needed exercise. This is coming from a man who makes $500,000 a year.

The attempt to gut Canada Post is part of the long-standing intention of Stephen Harper to break apart the postal service and privatize its more profitable sections for their friends on Bay Street.

Additionally, it represents an attempt to destroy one of the most organized and militant sections of the Canadian labour movement. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has historically been at the forefront of the labour movement. It was the first major union to win maternity leave and has a proud history of refusing to buckle to threats of the courts and cops.

Join us for an important discussion on the fight to protect our postal service, to protect good jobs and to defend our labour movement. Hands Off Canada Post!

Mike Palecek, CUPW National Union Representative
Daryl Ellis, President, CUPW Toronto local
