Victory! Mail delivery is saved for 4 million Canadians

“I wonder, has anyone at Canada Post ever tried to to push a stroller or a wheelchair or a walker through the snow? I don’t think they realize the impact of ending door-to-door mail delivery when it comes to the parents of young children, to the disabled, and to the elderly, especially in winter. 

This has to be stopped. A lot of people need home delivery because of their circumstances. Please sign the petition and share this with as many people as you can. The more people we get, the more solid the chances will be that Canada post and the government hear our voices!!”

That rallying cry is what Susan Dixon of Cambridge Ontario, a single mother of two kids including a 6-year-old with cerebral palsy, had to say in December 2013, when the government announced the end of home mail delivery. She didn’t think she’d get much support, but felt she had to find some way to fight back.

Two years and over 270,000 signatures later, after allying with postal workers, contacting the media, and rallying fellow Canadians, Susan managed to do what she thought was impossible: she helped saved home delivery, for herself and 4 million other Canadians.
