Force Canada Post to lower prices

This petition had 5 supporters

The postal rates in Canada are too high for businesses to be able to compete on even a national scale. It costs so much to send anything via parcel that most customers balk at buying anything if actual shipping is charged; this means that Canadian businesses have to pay the majority of shipping costs, which particularly impacts small/medium sized businesses and home businesses as this can consume a large portion of their revenue.

Online business is a fast growing piece of the market, and is certainly going to be an even larger part going forward. In its present approach to online business, Canada Post is the single largest roadblock to growth and success; they hinder and in many cases render impossible the success of innovative, modern business.

If Canadian businesses could offer more competitive shipping rates both domestically and internationally, the growth that would seen would greatly expand both this sector of the market and the Canadian economy in general, diversifying the business ecology and providing a greater amount of both resilience and flexibility in the case of hard times, and ensuring the future success of the economy at large.
