Write a Letter to your Local Paper

Want to help? Write a letter to the Editor of your local paper!
And perhaps the Victoria Times-Colonist, as well as the Surrey Now which is where Coast Capital’s headquarters are.

Public pressure has made the Boards reverse bad decisions in the past. Keep up the pressure by writing to your local papers. Every little bit counts. And be sure to Vote!

Not sure who to write to? Here is a list of local papers and email address of the editor.
If your local paper is not in there, please let us know in a comment, along with the contact info if you have it, and we will add it!

Write your local paper today!
Be a Buddy, not a Bully v2

We ask that letters to the editor include, at the end, links “for further info:” http://coastcapitalcompensationwatch.com and/or http://votermedia.blogspot.ca
Thanks!

  2. Good work-we certainly need to remind the Coast Capital Board that they have no entitlement other than what members give them. They don’t seem to understand the basic principles of democracy or the values of the credit union movement!! They need reminding!!
