Mr. J. W. KENNEDY:

I should like to point out the great discrepancy that exists between the remuneration given to the rural mail carriers and to the letter carriers. It has been stated on the floor of this House that the letter carriers may receive a maximum of $1,260, and on top of that a bonus approximating $400, which would bring their total remuneration up to about $1,600. The rural mail carriers, on the other hand, are doing their work for anything between $500 and $900, and in many cases they have to supply two horses and a rig. They receive no bonus whatever. I notice that the minister takes refuge behind the statement that bonuses are only granted to those who are receiving fixed salaries, and that the mail carriers work under contract. That is perhaps true, but the Post Office Department are practically setting the salaries received by the rural mail carriers, Although they advertise for tenders in almost all cases, any post office inspector who feels that a tender is to high so informs the tenderer, offering him a smaller amount. In most cases this is the way the agreement is made. The work is not actually done by tender. I wish to point out the great difference there is between the salaries received by the letter carriers and by these men who are doing much more arduous work.
