MORE WAYS TO TAKE ACTION: View, Edit & Send a Letter

Voice your concerns to Government officials and your MP and MLA.

Please write to National Anchorages Initiative (Transport Canada), Elizabeth May (MP), Adam Olsen (MLA), George Heyman (Minister of the Environment, Province of BC), Catherine McKenna (Minister of the Environment, Responsible for Parks Canada), John Horgan (Premier of BC), and others.

The Interim Protocol is expected to expire in August 2019. It is unclear if there will be another extension or if anchorages may become permanent.

It is always best to write your own letter (see also some helpful information here).

If you don't have time, here is an easy way to send a template letter that you can edit to reflect your personal perspective:

TAKE ACTION:
Prepare & Send a Letter


Please Note:
Some officials consider all identical letters sent to them as only one response. Therefore it is important to personalize your letter, even if it is only the first sentence. Describe how it affects your quality of life or your business.

Please keep track of your letters and avoid sending multiple copies to the same person.

Contacting an Official: Some helpful points

When composing your own letter, avoid sending emails with several officials in the same address line, or including them by 'cc'. If not addressed to them directly, some officials will rate your letter simply as information that the problem is taken care of by someone else.

It is important to personalize your letter. Describe how it affects your quality of life or your business.

Ask specific questions. Officials are usually required to answer questions and will take your letter more seriously.

Ask for specific actions and outcomes. If your letter is not asking for anything specific, the answer is more likely to be a generic reply informing you of their views.

Please feel free to forward us a copy of your letter. Knowing the range of responses and the numbers sent will make our case stronger.

If you have any questions, or if you receive responses from officials you would like to share with us, please contact us or via email to "info" "at" "our website".
