SAVE OUR RAILWAYS

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Write your local MLA

Write your local MLA. Members of the legislative assembly are compelled by custom to read and reply to every unique letter they receive. While it may seem archaic, this form of messaging brings the issue to their attention and lets them know voters care about rail on Vancouver Island.

TAG it on Social Media

Social media hashtags ensure that posts and photos get shared on the content streams of others. Use your social media (Facebook, Twitter etc) to post how important rail is and tag it with account ID tags like @jjhorgan (Our premier's Twitter handle), @rob_fleming (Twitter - Ministry of Transport Infrastructure), @bcndp, @BCGreens, @bcliberals (don't forget the opposition parties on Twitter) and please remember the media like @BCNewsWire. Adding our Premier plus the news media may lead to direct questions during interviews!
