Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of National Revenue.
The President of the Treasury Board stated that there was no policy to close rural post offices. That is small comfort to my constituents when, in an audit by Deloitte & Touche, it was found that Canada Post failed to comply with its policies in 355 of 599 cases that were reviewed.
The workers' union president said that the corporation was more interested in paring down post offices than building them up.
In a year of record profits, will the minister state on the record in the House for the constituents of Souris--Moose Mountain that there will be no closure of rural post offices in 2005?
