Subject: FW: Kitchissippi Town Hall on Defending Home Mail Delivery, Wed Apr 9, 7pm
Date: Wed, 9 Apr 2014 13:30:38 +0000
Short notice, as event is tonight but it just came.
Kitchissippi Town Hall:
Defend Our Home Mail Delivery!
Wednesday, April 9th, 7:00pm
Hintonburg Community Centre
1064 Wellington St.
Canada Post announced on December 11 that all door-to-door delivery would be terminated across Canada, something that no country has ever done. Their plan begins as early as this fall in Kanata. Will Kitchissippi be next?
This is an issue that Kitchissippi / Ward 15 residents care deeply about. All residents, but especially seniors and persons with disabilities, depend on and benefit from home mail delivery. A growing number of mayors, city councils, and other elected leaders are expressing their opposition to Canada Post’s announcement.
Please come out to attend this open, Town Hall meeting to discuss what is happening, how our municipal and other elected representatives have responded, and what we might do in the coming months to defend OUR home delivery.
Speakers at the event will include:
NICK APLIN (81-year-old Kitchissippi senior & activist)
PETER DENLEY (CUPW)
SHELLIE BIRD (Kitchissippi resident with Solidarity Against Austerity)
Organized by Solidarity Against Austerity
