Political Persuasion on Site C

  • Persuade existing MLA’s to take a strong stand against Site C and support the need to halt construction while an thorough assessment of the project is conducted by the public watchdog, the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC).
    • Achieve this goal by writing letters to MLA’s and candidates and following up with a face-to-face meeting or phone call to discuss the issue

Other Strategies

  • Write a letter
    • to your local paper (ccing large publications like the Vancouver Sun, The Province or Times Colonist) outlining the concerns associated with Site C. Include a variety of examples, starting with the increase in cost of every British Columbians’ hydro bill.  Then you can include other issues such as cheaper alternatives, loss of prime food producing land, environmental and First Nations impacts.
    • to your MP
  • Create a banner
    • and hang it or hold it in a location where many will see it whether on a bridge, downtown in your community or at an event.
