Hello Renewable City team - our work to stop the Energy East pipeline continues! These days we are trying to help get some great, environmentally-minded, pipeline-opposing candidates elected in the Ottawa-Vanier riding provincial and federal by-elections. The provincial one is this week - Nov 17!
Therefore, this week, instead of going out canvassing in lower town and St. Laurent neighbourhoods, we are going to focus on getting in touch with people who have recently signed the no-pipeline petition, to ensure they get an email from us in time for the provincial by-election on Thursday.
To do this we need your help! Please join us on Tuesday, Nov 15 at the Ecology Ottawa office (1 Nicholas Street, suite 403) for a “data entry” party. Bring your own laptop if you can (there might be a couple to lend, please email if you'd like to borrow one), and together we’ll type the signatures from the petition sheets into a simple excel template.
Everyone is welcome - those of you who usually canvass, or this might be an opportunity for you to help if you haven’t been comfortable with door-to-door work.
Hope to see you Tuesday! Any questions please email Gillian.firstname.lastname@example.org or text 613-298-9167.
