We encourage you, as a Friend of Wind and Solar, to write a letter to your provincial representative to let him or her know that you want your MLA to demonstrate political leadership on climate change.
1) Be engaging: Allow some of your passion to show through without becoming too emotional.
2) Be concise: 300-600 words max. Short, concisely written letters can more successfully deliver a clear message than long meandering ones.
3) Be effective: Here are some tips for writing a good MLA letter.
4) Be ready to respond: Your representative’s reply may be personal with a promise of action, but it may also be generic. If you aren’t satisfied, write back and let your MLA know. This second letter is often the one he or she reads. If you are satisfied, don’t forget to say thank you.
Government web sites in each province and territory provide contact information for all Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and Members of the Provincial parliament (MPPs). You can find your representative by clicking on the province where you live:
