Engage at 7pm regarding the rural highway speed limit review. Use hashtag #BCSpeedReview

VICTORIA - Join the conversation on the Province's Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review during a Twitter Town Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
During the Twitter Town Hall, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone (@toddstoneBC), supported by the ministry (@TranBC), will pose questions and take your queries and feedback on rural highway safety and speed via Twitter.
How to participate:

  • For this Twitter chat, it is recommended you use a web-based program such as Hootsuite or TweetChat, or an application such as TweetDeck.
  • If you are using a web-based program, set up a new stream called #BCSpeedReview.
  • If you use a Twitter app, enter #BCSpeedReview in the hashtag search box at the top of the screen after you connect your Twitter account to the program.
  • These tools will give you a running list of all the tweets and retweets for the chat.
  • Remember to include #BCSpeedReview in your tweets, so they will be included in the conversation and recorded in the archive at the end of the chat.
  • When responding to a tweet, please use the "reply" button. That way, the conversation will remain threaded so people can see who you are responding to and what they said.
Public input from the Twitter Town Hall, the online engagement and public forums will form an important part of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review.
This feedback received will be considered in conjunction with the technical review, which is already underway. Practical recommendations from this review and a strategy for implementation will be ready in early spring 2014.
British Columbians can get more information on the review and share feedback online at: www.gov.bc.ca/safetyandspeedreview/

Can we expect anything out of this? They already know what we want, it's simple, traffic laws that make sense.

...And they want laws that make $cents.
Let the illusion of democratic process begin!

Via Twitter? Really? Ugh.
What's wrong? Surely you must think 140 characters is an ample amount for the people of British Columbia to provide feedback to their govern

It is for many.


So all you twitters what happened?
The TH was hijacked by all the angry Island residents who are seeing their BC Ferry service reduced. They tweeted relentlessly. Other than that, it was what you would expect; raise the limits, keep them the same, drop them because the world goes by way too quickly for bicycles. That's all. If you have not done so already, please visit the SENSE BC website and email your MLA and the Transportation Minister www.sense.bc.org
