Canada Post finally rejects a business model that can’t deliver

Somewhere in Canada, someone is penning a letter to the editor expressing how shocked and appalled they are by Canada Post’s decision to discontinue urban home delivery service.

Canada Post should be applauded for finally recognizing economic reality.
