On April 11, from 11:00am to 1:00pm, we will make history, holding banners for two hours atop Highway 1 overpasses throughout the Lower Mainland, from Chilliwack in the east to Eagleridge Bluffs in West Vancouver, in support of passenger rail and in opposition to our government’s current single-minded Gateway agenda of road-building and 2nd-class transit for the South of Fraser.

*To sign up to take part in this important action, please send an email to railforthevalley@gmail.com*

We need to be very organized to pull this off, so

HAVE A LOOK AT THE MAP

& let me know your overpass preference, as well as a contact telephone number.

*If you don’t have a banner, don’t let that stop you. We can provide you with one.*
