LETTER WRITING

YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED!

CAPT has prepared a letter to send to Terry Sheehan, member of parliament for Sault Ste. Marie. This letter stresses the economic hardships, businesses and organizations have experienced since the Algoma Central Railway was discontinued. It also urges the government to allocate operational funding to the Missanabie Cree First Nations so they can be operators of the Mask-wa Oo-ta-ban (Bear Train).
We would encourage you to sign the letter and either email or post it to Terry Sheehan and the other Members of Parliament that are listed at the end of the letter.
Addresses to post and/or email your letter is provided below.
