Canada Post Committed to Rural Delivery

In a statement from the Honourable John McCallum from Lumsden, Saskatchewan, August 25, 2005, Canada Post renewed its commitment to the moratorium against rural post office closures. While the statement indicated that there may be some instances where the closure of a rural post office is unavoidable, the statement emphasized "this government is committed to keeping rural post offices open".

"In recent months there have been several statements made that Canada Post has targeted several rural post offices for closure. This is simply not true. The Government of Canada recognizes that rural post offices play an integral role in rural Canada and for that reason I can state definitively that, if there is a post office in your community today, it will continue to be there into the future."
