EVERY VOICE COUNTS.
Sharing concerns about the Site C Dam social media can help to ensure as many British Columbians as possible know about the devastating economic, environmental and political effects of the dam.
CONTACTING YOUR BC MLA IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS YOU CAN MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD. Our MLAs do—and should—listen to you. Let them know that you oppose the Site C Dam and you expect them to stop it. You can do so in the following ways:
1. Email your MLA stating your opposition to Site C. You can find your MLA’s email here. Be sure to include Premier Horgan and Energy Minister Michelle Mungall in your email (their emails can also be found on the leg.bc.ca contact page).
2. Write a letter to your BC MLA. You can find your MLA’s postal address here. Traditional mail is more effective than email.
3. Walk into your MLA’s constituency office. You can find the address here. This is one of the most effective things you can do. Constituents walking into MLA offices can change minds.
- Ask to talk to your MLA or leave a short verbal or written message with their constituency assistant.
- You do not have to be an expert in the topic to speak to your MLA! It’s enough to briefly state your position firmly and politely. Your voice should be heard by those who represent you.
You can also:
5. Share relevant articles, statistics or questions widely on social media. British Columbians deserve to know the true cost of the Site C Dam—economically, environmentally, and socially.
