Stop the Closure of the Downtown Truro Post Office sign now

 

Recently, Canada Post made the decision to close the Prince Street (downtown) post office location. Here is a portion of the letter that was sent out to those who lodged feedback on the issue:

"After careful consideration and review of customer feedback, Canada Post has decided to relocate the Truro Main post office at 664 Prince Street to 366 Industrial Avenue in the Fall of 2013.  We will provide you with an update once a relocation date has been confirmed.  As per the Canadian Postal Service Charter that governs Canada Post, the Corporation undertook a 30-day public consultation before deciding to relocate this post office. "

I am not sure how many signatures would stop them or how much feedback they have received already but I do think we as a community need to speak up. There was no mention of the numbers of supporters and detractors that responded in the 30 days. I personally have not heard one word of support for the closure. 

In short, this is another nail in the coffin of downtown Truro. It is a mistake in terms of growing a community and I do believe an economic mistake in the longterm. A closure makes it difficult for retail businesses, offices, churches, and not-for-profits in the downtown. Truro does not have public transportation and if left open, would continue to be an easy place to get to for young families, older people, or those with disabilities. 

I do think we can still stop this closure if we speak up. It is not passed time. Please sign the petition. Share it. If you care about Truro, if you care about the downtowns and Main streets of communities across Nova Scotia and the entire Nation, then sign and pass it on.
