Canadians from coast to coast are speaking up!

Despite massive opposition from hundreds of thousands of everyday Canadians and the country’s top privacy experts, reckless Bill C-51 is now law.  Bill C-51 violates our Charter rights and could lead to dangerous and unconstitutional measures. Above all, it underlines just how stark Canada’s privacy deficit has become. Throughout this whole process, over 275,000 Canadians have signed the petition against the bill and tens of thousands more have inundated MPs and Senators with letters, phone calls, emails and tweets to express their opposition. We are witnessing one of the largest campaigns in Canadian history. One of the most powerful actions Canadians are taking is using our Letter-to-the-Editor tool. This powerful tool has enabled Canadians to successfully publish dozens of letters in over 70 major Canadian newspapers, an effective and innovative way to speak out and spread the word in local communities against Bill C-51. 

It's amazing how Canadians from coast to coast to coast are speaking up!

All these newspaper letters inspire us to keep up our fight until the Bill is repealed.

The message coming across again and again in these pages is that this reckless bill undermines our basic democratic rights, and Canadians won't stand for it. 

We know decision-makers in Ottawa are feeling the pressure from thousands of Canadians about the unpopular legislation. The Senators themselves publicly said they'd been stunned at the overwhelming flood of emails they received over C-51. 

That's why we need to keep fighting all the way through to the October election and ensure every Canadian voter knows where their representatives stood when it mattered most. Help us to keep up this momentum!

It's time to take action and speak out loudly about how reckless, dangerous and ineffective this bill is. Let's keep piling pressure on all party leaders to commit to repeal Bill C-51. 

Thanks for standing up Canada! We know from experience how powerful people can be when we stand together.
