Public Fury Expected Over Postal Cuts

The Federal government and Canada Post will receive a huge public backlash if they tinker with the postal service in this country! That prediction from the President of the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour. Rick Clarke tells us seniors and the disabled will be particularly impacted by the move to cut door to door mail delivery. He says its reminiscent of a by-gone era.

Clarke says he's seen one on-line petition with more than 60-thousand names on it and thats only a week since the issue began. He predicts hundreds of thousands of Canadians, including labour groups, will chime-in on the debate through the winter and into the spring. Clarke says it'll be something the Harper government and Canada Post won't be able to ignore.
