Thank you very much for coming here today. It's always nice to hear from representatives of seniors' groups and groups representing the disabled and other disadvantaged groups. They experience and use the postal service in different ways and have different needs.
It's also a bit surprising to see Mr. Casey here today. His name has been on the list for a while, but it's interesting, and typically the point that Mr. Casey makes is the one that Mr. Weir normally does here at committee. Of course, I will pose the same challenges as I did to Mr. Weir.
St. John's was in exactly the same situation as Charlottetown was during the election. We asked them point blank what they felt it meant when we said that we would save home mail delivery. They talked about how we were not as strong on this point as the NDP had been during the election.
What it meant was that we would put a moratorium in place, which we did six days after the election, and that we would do this very consultation process. Why should Charlottetown be treated differently because their changes happened over the span of, say, from October 17 when the holes were dug to October 26 when the installation of the boxes was finished, versus some other community whose mailboxes were installed in August or September?
