A few years ago I wrote about travelling to Corvallis. Today, I learned that there is an online petition to bring reliable, frequent passenger rail to Corvallis. If you would be more likely to visit Corvallis if passenger rail service existed, please consider adding your name to the petition.
The BC General Election is May 14, 2013. Now is the time to get on the voters’ list, meet the candidates in your electoral district, and let them know that you want to see some action on sustainable transportation, from transit to cycling.
If, like me, you missed last night’s Next Generation Transportation: All Party Forum, you can catch up on the conversation by viewing a summary of the participants’ tweets (thanks SFU Carbon Talks). Don’t forget to also search #bctranspo on Twitter.
On Election Day (and advance voting days), join the BC Cycling Coalition’s Bike to Vote campaign by pedaling to the polls.
Together, we can make transportation an election issue!
