Flood the Papers

Good Morning. I’ve been up since 5:00am this morning, so I feel like my day is already half over. Anyway, I’ll spare you the detail… If you’re looking for something to do this morning, I suggest that you write a letter to your local newspaper about the need for restoring the Interurban to the South Fraser. Rail for the Valley, with a strong base of support in Abbotsford and Chilliwack, is having their first anniversary “Flood the Papers” event today.

From their Facebook group:


For those of you who are new to this, it's really simple. On WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 3 we're going to FLOOD our newspapers across the Fraser Valley with Letters to the Editor, regarding the need for passenger rail service for the Fraser Valley NOW!

-Your letter doesn't need to be pretty. Short is good. Let them know what's on your mind! If you wish, you can read other people's letters to get some ideas for your own.

-Email addresses of newspapers are listed below. Simply copy and paste a few of them to send to (local letters have the highest chance of being published), write your letter, and sign your name and address. Send it away on SEPTEMBER 3. You can also post it to facebook if you wish.
