PressProgress: Conservative candidate on C-51: Civil liberties? “Folks, that’s not the country we live in”
Civil liberties protect our personal freedoms. They allow us to express ourselves without fear of interference, they preserve our right to speak, to assemble, to organize, to move around freely and protect our identity. C-51 will limit our civil liberties, and even this Conservative candidate said so. Let's stop this before it's too late!

This is it folks - there are now just 24 hours before tomorrow’s FINAL House of Commons vote on Bill C-51. That’s right – there are just hours left to tell your MP to vote against this reckless Bill that will endanger our rights, turn CSIS into a secret police force, and make us all less safe. As the clock ticks down, we need to pull out all the stops to tell MPs to side with Canadians, do the right thing, and vote against this reckless, dangerous, and ineffective legislation.
