On June 17, 2019, the Canadian government declared a climate emergency, passing a motion through parliament calling climate change a “real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity.”
This doesn’t shock us. We already know that our country is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world and that it is becoming increasingly difficult for our planet to breathe.
For many years, we have advocated that Canada Post can and should play a key role in addressing its own ecological footprint. We know the central role the post office can play in creating a sustainable tomorrow. Through Delivering Community Power, we have outlined a path forward.
We have organized with allies, talked to municipalities and to all levels of governments, educated our families, neighbours and friends about our ambitious vision for the post office.
Our hard work is starting to pay off.
