Mr. Nixon, if, tomorrow morning, you were the CEO of Canada Post, you wouldn't categorically choose either paradigm, but you would try to mix the two. Is that correct?

A number of measures proposed by Canada Post and findings made by the task force appointed by the liberal government support service reductions.
A number of union members told us that if we meddle with post offices or lift the moratorium on the closure of rural post offices, for example, it would be the beginning of the end. They think that if we dare to meddle with the enormous infrastructure—one of Canada Post's greatest assets—the end would be inevitable.
Do you think this vision is false or accurate?

In the paradigm of reducing services, is the angle absolutely that Canada Post will not exist anymore? A lot of people told us that.

Okay. Normally I speak in French for the sake of the country, but I'll speak in English.
Moose Jaw is a gorgeous city, so my first question goes to the municipality. It's a straightforward question. Is Canada Post a national symbol of federal unity for you and the people living here?

Madam Marshall-Colenutt and Madam Perkins, for the aboriginal people of this region, is Canada Post a service or do you find it to be a national symbol?

Thank you.
Going back to the municipality, you said that you were not consulted about where community mailboxes would be located. Did you receive a letter or a call telling you that there would be an implementation of this change?

Okay.
What do you think about the idea of reforming the law with regard to Canada Post so that there is a concrete obligation for Canada Post to always consult with any cities when there is change? Do you think that would be a good thing to do?

How does the city see the task force results? There were five points. The community mailbox was one of them, and a higher tariff for stamps, for example. One of the conclusions was interesting, I think. They said we should probably close down all the post offices that are now within the huge urban regions to be able to keep the ones in the rural regions.
Would you support this way forward, to close down the offices that used to be rural but because of city growth are now in the big cities?

It might be that we make sure to keep the postal offices in the rural regions, which is very important.
Madam Perkins, I just want to make sure that in the blues we get it right. I was confused. Are you against door-to-door or against community mailboxes?

Again, Mr. Watson, how do you think Canada Post should deal with its financial difficulties?

Do you think that all the propositions and the way going forward to deal with the deficit should all be found inside Canada Post or is there some outside solution? For example, for the workforce of Canada Post, do you think there should be some measures taken to reduce costs?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Sanderson, in recent days, this committee has travelled to several provinces and the Northwest Territories. Most colleagues from your labour union seemed to say that the deficit forecasts were not accurate. If I understand correctly, you also believe the forecasts are not accurate.

Sorry to interrupt you, but I have a number of questions to ask you.
I was referring to the deficit expected according to Canada Post. The deficit would be $750 million by 2026. I was referring to that deficit. I assume that, like your colleagues in the rest of Canada, you don't think this forecast is accurate.
How did the task force reach the same conclusion as Canada Post? Canada Post may have vested interests, but how do you think the task force was able to obtain the same result?

Thank you.
I understand that the problem between you and the management arises from the fact that the basic premises are not the same. You don't believe in the same analyses and statistics.
There was talk of a deficit of $750 million by 2026. Canada Post's 2015 annual report says that, under the current collective agreement, the employees hired after March 1, 2015, will receive lower wages, will be entitled to fewer annual sick days and will have job security only after 10 years of service.
I can understand why you're firmly opposed to a wage reduction, and that makes sense. Nobody wants to see their wage reduced. In your presentation, you said that, in the future, everyone will need to make efforts. Would it be important to accept fewer annual sick days since all Canadians are currently making efforts? Is your union ready to accept certain measures in addition to the wage reductions?
