With the breakdown in negotiations between Canada Post management and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, many cities across Canada have been subject to rotating strikes by the mail carriers. Naturally, it is Canadians who rely on the crown corporation for mail delivery that are adversely affected. It doesn’t have to be this way. To protect consumers, the solution is to privatize Canada Post.

Canada Post is a dinosaur that has lived far too long.  Only a monopoly protected by government can treat the public the way it does.  The cost of stamps for a first class letter on January 11 went from 54 to 57 cents, for an increase in 5.5 percent over a year in which consumer prices rose only half that rate.  Since 1971, when a stamp cost 7 cents, the cost of mailing a letter has jumped by 714 percent while general inflation was only 443 percent.
