VIA Rail is at a crossroads, with the future of public transit hanging in the balance. As our ‘Get Canada Back on Track’ campaign gains steam, we're calling on Unifor members, to show your support.
Here’s how you can take action:
Choose VIA Rail for Your Journey:
What better way to show our commitment to publicly-owned rail service than by using it ourselves? Whenever possible, choose VIA Rail for your travel needs. It's a practical way to stand in solidarity with our movement and a green choice for our environment.
Be a Visual Storyteller:
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so imagine the story we could tell with pictures from across Canada! During your VIA Rail journeys, take photos that capture the essence of your experience. Share them on social media using #CanadaBackOnTrack, letting your unique perspective encourage others to join the campaign.
Make your voice heard:
You have the power to enact change. Sign our petition advocating for significant investment in our national passenger rail system. Remember, though, this is a journey that goes beyond a single action. Reach out to your MP, emphasizing our collective resolve for an enhanced, sustainable VIA Rail service. Whether through an email, a phone call, or a face-to-face meeting, convey the message that a dependable, efficient, and publicly-owned passenger rail network is essential for Canada’s future.
Engage Locally for National Change:
Reach out to your MP whether through an email, a phone call, or a face-to-face meeting, convey the message that a dependable, efficient, and publicly-owned passenger rail network is essential for Canada’s future. When our message resonates in the halls of local governance, it echoes through the corridors of power in Ottawa.
Your involvement can make a real difference in guiding Canada towards a future where our national rail service is robust, publicly-owned, and primarily passenger-focused.
