Fuelled by Muscle Power; Coast Capital Savings Employees Ride to Work to Mark Clean Air Day

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 7, 2006) - What better way to save on sky-high fuel costs and also give Mother Nature a breather. A group of Coast Capital Savings staff ride to work on Clean Air Day June 7, with moral support from members of the international professional cycling team, Symmetrics. Workers across Canada walked, cycled or carpooled to work as part of this year's national Commuter Challenge.

Coast Capital Savings hopes to beat the 70 per cent employee participation recorded in last year's Commuter Challenge.
