Dear Editor:

This letter is sent regarding the opening of the new “postal outlet” at the local Pharmasave.

I think you (in your editorial in the Osoyoos Times in the March 19 edition) and our local MP, Alex Atamanenko, have overlooked a significant point which really shows the Harper government’s continuing hypocrisy.

If the establishment of a postal outlet had anything at all to do with better servicing Canada Post’s customers and nothing at all to do with setting up conditions for closing our present town post office as claimed, why would the location of this new outlet be virtually across the street?

If Ottawa was to have any credibility with their “better serving the customer” claim, surely the location of the outlet would have been in the vicinity of the “uptown” end of Main Street or some place like Gateway Square.

Thank you.

David Smith

Osoyoos, B.C.
