I guess socialism is a-ok when it is rural socialism:
The Conservative government is ordering Canada Post to protect rural mail delivery and maintain a fund that subsidizes postage for Canadian magazines. Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon announced Wednesday that he has directed the Crown corporation to implement a plan to restore and maintain mail delivery to rural roadside mailboxes within 18 months. He has also told Canada Post to continue funding the Publications Assistance Program for up to two more years.I used to get magazines delivered to my rural mail box until I found out that the guy wouldn't get out of his car if the snowbank meant he had to lean over to open the little door to put the mail in. Then I got a post box number.
I suppose this magazine thing makes some sense but why not me, too? I mean surely I must get more readers that some small magazines. Shouldn't I get a subsidy, too? Maybe if I called this The Manitoba Rural Report instead of GX40. Maybe I need to add some hay stacks and rosy cheeked agricultural labourer imagery. Maybe a few links like this.
