Get involved today
There are many ways you can get involved in the movement to oppose the #1 Highway expansion. Take a moment to make your voice heard on this issue. Here are a few ways to get started.
The Provincial Government has recently announced the first three months of its "public consultation" (actually, a series of open houses). Attend, distribute brochures, make your concerns known! Details are up on our events calendar. Contact us if you would like more information.
The consultation plan and open house times and places are detailed at: click here (it's a pdf file).
The project definition report and other info can be found at: click here (takes you to a website).
We are now strategizing about what our next steps will be, post-election. A three-pronged approach is being schemed up with activities focused at pressuring the municipal, provincial and federal governments to STOP the #1 Hwy Expansion, LOOK at alternatives and LISTEN to citizens. Sign up on-line or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
