Postal Union Innovates while Canada Post Stands Still
The Huffington Post is reporting that Canada Post Continues To Stand Still As The World Passes It By but that is simply not true. In reality, the Postal union has some great ideas for innovation while Canada Post and the Canadian government let that brilliant opportunity pass them by.
The Huffington Post article regurgitates the same old rhetoric about getting rid of the postal monopoly. Mail volumes are declining. We could easily go to second day delivery. Parcels are the way of the future. Canada Post delivers Amazon and online orders. Instead of fighting over table scraps by getting rid of the postal monopoly we need to look at getting rid of the banking monopoly. That is where the real money is.
The Union is suggesting we bring back postal banking. That makes sense. Especially in rural areas: #ABankForEveryone Breaking the bank monopoly would be in everyone's best interest.
