The Results are in!

We had an overwhelming response to the survey we sent out last month and we wanted to share with you what we’ve learned.

We had nearly 500 responses to our survey and it seems many of you are keen to get involved. Over all you are interested in four things:

1.  Media attention. Get into the media regularly. Get columnists on­ our side. Use social media.

2. Political campaigns. Get politicians to state their opinions on PR. Get them to commit to making changes.  Go to all candidates meetings and write letters.

3. Education. Talk to high school and university students.  Provide simple brochures that people can give to friends to explain what PR is.

4.  Humour. Several people mentioned that humour is a good way to engage the public.

What’s next? We’d like to begin by inviting you to our Meetup next week. It will be held at The Whip in Vancouver on May 28th at 7pm. If you’d like to join us, please RSVP on our Meetup page as spaces are limited. This is a casual event to meet and greet some of the leadership of Fair Vote Canada – Vancouver Chapter and discuss how to action all these great ideas.

If you’re unable to make it to the Meetup but are still interested in participating in our Fair Civic Election campaign, please visit our Volunteers page and let us know how you want to help. We will be in touch with you and will set you up with an action team.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey! We are very excited to be working with you all!
