My son Garnets grade 3 class was doing a civics exercise this week. They each wrote a letter to BC Premier Gordon Campbell.
Garnets teacher told him that since the letter was going to the Premier, he didnt need to put any postage on the envelope.
Canada Post disagrees.
Ive always known that you can send letters free of charge to federal politicians. I dont recall hearing whether you can do the same with provincial politicians but apparently not.
Garnets bummed. And who can blame him. I mean, look at the care he took addressing the letter.
His lesson in civics now includes that there is a world of difference between provincial politicans and the feds.
