YOUR THREE STEPS TO BETTER RAPID TRANSIT:
1. PRINT THIS FLYER, and put it up somewhere for people to learn more about rapid transit options. If you can, print out many and get them somewhere visible outside of downtown. Don't litter!
2. TALK TO ONE FRIEND OR RELATIVE in Etobicoke, Scarborough, or North York. Find out how much they know about rapid transit, and tell them what plan you want to see. If they stump you let us know - maybe there's some useful information we can provide!
3. CALL YOUR CITY COUNCILLOR. This one is tough: if you live downtown you might think your councillor doesn't need your call, and if you live outside downtown you might think your councillor is a lost cause. Both things are untrue. City councillors need to hear from you, especially if you live near a proposed rapid transit line. They are hearing from local businesses, retirees, talk-radio listeners and complainers ALL DAY LONG! Give them some positives to talk about! Make it personal and tell them why you think LRT would be better for your commute, and for drivers, and for kids, and for local businesses.
4. BONUS FOURTH STEP: write back and tell us how your conversations went!
