Canada Post, CBC going way of dinosaurs

At a workshop nearly two weeks ago, members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) suggested letting the post office provide banking services through its 6,500 retail offices.

Oh, great. Now instead of waiting at the corner drugstore to pick up a parcel while standing behind someone fishing through a coin purse and discussing with the clerk whether to spend the extra $2.75 for express delivery of a niece’s birthday present, we’ll also have to stand behind people cashing cheques, inquiring about their account balances, buying insurance or making a contribution to their RSPs.

No thanks.
