The B.C. Ferry Coalition will be protesting against rate hikes and service cuts on Saturday, January 18, at 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Coasters are asked to write a brief letter of protest (300 words or less) to Christy Clark. Volunteers will collect the letters at the rally points along the Coast. Sustainable Coast has a list of protest locations. Make sure to make your stand at one of them.

By the way, when writing a letter to our charming premier it’s a good idea to ask for a response. Protest letters without a clear request for a reply may pile up in a to-be-trashed basket. When someone asks for a response, staff will usually write one. Give them enough work, and they might just nudge their boss about doing things differently.
