Last night was great.
There were about 20 of us, which could have made it a bit unwieldy and more difficult to get things done, but everyone was on the same page, people were focused and determined, and it was a great meeting. Most people who came were from Chilliwack, as well as a few from Abbotsford.
We completed the required paperwork to form a society – Friends Of Rail For The Valley – so hopefully that will be going through shortly.
Nothing fundamental changes with the Rail for the Valley campaign. There is simply now a new way for people to get involved and support this cause.
The purpose of the society: To advocate for the creation of a comprehensive passenger rail and transit network for the entire Fraser Valley, from Vancouver to Hope.
I think it’s a worthy goal.
