Hello Ms. Yuile:

My apologies if you received more than one flyer from the Conservative Party of Canada.

CPC asked Canada Post to deliver just one unaddressed piece per household, and if this didn’t happen in your case, we are sorry.

My reply:

Assistant 1,
Thank you for clarifying that it was actually Canada Post’s error and wastefulness in sending multiple flyers to each household- because it was not only my home, but several thousand others who received them.
I will be sure to send them your reply and take that matter up with them directly. Their response will be interesting, I am sure.
However, this does not address why a Saskatchewan MP is sending costly flyers to BC residents who are quite obviously not his constituents? I,and my readers, would appreciate an answer regarding this matter, perhaps from Garry himself.
Thank you

  1. Assistant 1 also doesn’t explain why it would be Canada Post’s fault that these flyers got distributed in non-Conservative ridings. If there’s a rule that allows a group of MPs to send a mailout to 10 per cent of the households in their collective ridings, how is it that most of these burger wrappers seem to show up outside their collective ridings?
