Blog 55: Pitt Meadows parade produces a passel of support for the Key Campaign

Ford Road Co-op president Ruth Meyers put in a blue-ribbon performance at Pitt Meadows Day on Saturday, handing out fliers asking folks to support the You Hold the Key Campaign and write Housing Minister Rich Coleman urging him to fix the co-op housing crunch. Here's Ruth's report:

“We did it! Between myself and two other brave members we got 250 signatures and all the flyers handed out...what a day, but I sure enjoyed doing it.  I had a great time getting out and talking to people about what is coming down in the coming years ahead. It was surprising to hear so many people say ‘Yes, I read something about that.’ On the flip side, there were tons of people who claimed they hadn't heard about it.  On the whole though people were interested and very concerned about the situation.  And, yes I did get some sunburn but it was well worth it...LOL.”
