Approximately 110 BCRTA members have engaged in the Bill C27 Advocacy, most writing, calling, or visiting directly, others advocating in groups either visiting MPs or signing onto a common letter. In some cases, such as in the Wine Country Branch, estimates were made for this analysis when it was reported that “several members had contacted the ‘riding’ MP.” Contacts have been made with 34 MPs – including the Prime Minister and Finance Minister — and 3 MLAs.

Some contacts (4) were made by people other than BCRTA members; they asked that their action be noted in our file.
