Make your voice heard on Bill C-51 and rights violations in the name of security
Fight for your rights before you lose them!
“Apathy is the best friend of the status quo or oppression, and an enemy of empowerment and progress.”
The Canadian government is reviewing our national security framework and have been consulting Canadians on key elements of Canada’s national security laws and policies to ensure they reflect the rights, values and freedoms of Canadians. This engagement opened on September 8, 2016 and will end on December 15, 2016. For more information click here.
By participating, your insight will help inform the development of future legislation, policies or programs. Leading civil rights groups and activists are calling for the Anti-Terror Act, 2015 (formerly known as Bill C-51) to be repealed, but they need your support!
What You Need To Do:
Do not delay as you can only provide your input by December 15th!
1) Participate in the online component where you can detail your concerns to the government in writing.
2) Participate in the in-person consultations (this may be too late, but you can contact your MP).
3) Write to your Member of Parliament.
4) Donate, join and volunteer with organizations at the forefront (Please see list at the end of the Bill C-51 Primer document noted below).
For background on the main concerns with the changes introduced by Bill C-51 and some of the other problems with our existing national security framework please review our Primer on Providing Input to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security and your Member of Parliament Regarding National Security in General and BILL C-51.
