City council wants to put forward a resolution against the community mailboxes.
Even PC Candidate and Councillor Steve Black thinks this isn’t the right fit for Northern Ontario. He says with the harsh winters and the ageing population this doesn’t increase accessibility for Northerners.
He says the issue is less about the jobs and more about accessibility. It’s not an argument of jobs because it’s not the government’s duty to create government jobs. He says those should be dealt with in the private sector to save on government expenses.
Black says the government needs to look at the way of life here: the weather and the increasing amount of seniors.
He says it’s simply not suitable.
