April 22, 2008 — The federal government yesterday launched a strategic review of Canada Post, but ruled out privatizing the country's second-largest crown corporation.

"This review is being conducted with the full understanding that Canada Post will remain a crown corporation," said Lawrence Cannon, minister responsible for Canada Post.

The three-member panel heading the review includes Robert Campbell, dean of arts at Wilfrid Laurier University and author of two books on postal politics.

The review comes at a crucial time for Canada Post. . .
