According to a new report from CBC News, a total of nine organizations in British Columbia have decided to join forces to advocate in favour of ride-sharing services.
Some of the organizations included Vancouver Board of Trade, B.C. Business Council, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, and San-Francisco-based ride-sharing company Lyft.
Today we launch our coalition to urge B.C. government to finally bring ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber to our province with 9 organizations and hopefully you. Head to https://t.co/vxj8cxKzom to join us and send a letter to your MLA about the need for ridesharing. pic.twitter.com/3aMlASbxF5

The organizations all got together and published a news release saying that it has launched a campaign to politicians in the province calling for a much needed competitive ride-sharing industry.
If you want to support this initiative, please head over to this website and email a letter to your local representative to ask for a speedy introduction to ride-sharing services.
