Writing to Government
One of the best ways to be engaged with the political world around you is to make contact with your MLA or MP. They exist to take the concerns of their constituents into account, so by writing to them, you are helping the democratic process thrive. It does not have to be very long or very formal; just expressing your concerns gives your representative a better idea of what their constituents value and want improved.
