Rick Mercer puts the home delivery question in perspective in his new rant. Is there anyone listening?
"Did that really happen? Did Canada Post come out and say they were stopping all home delivery in cities?
Yes they did.
The head of Canada Post when he was asked how this would affect people in cities who are seniors and the disabled and don't drive cars said this,
