There are two blame for the position of the Canadian postal system: the union representing the workers and the ruling prime minister of the day.
At the beginning of the last federal election campaign, PND promised to reverse the supermarket's conservatives' decision and bring home supplies.
Justin Trudeau's last liberals have doubled the promise – a promise that made no sense, given that the volume of letters has fallen daily for 40 years and the pattern is clearly broken.
After the election, Trudeau came to power and realized that no one has the money for such a bad reversal.

Then he simply parked the problem he created, leaving an ineffective postal system blocked between past and present.
The survival of the union is based on the number of members it pays taxes and has no interest in reducing the number of employees that would ultimately happen with a modern business model. Packages are their future deliveries, not delivery by mail.
When he did not look like he could win, Trudeau threw Hail Mary to be elected and certainly helped her.
How ironic is the fact that the party that maintains the Canada Post from modernization is now legalizing them back to work?
If both sides work for what is truly the best for all Canadians, instead of their greedy agendas, the postal system would be much better for everyone.
