Candidates are being flooded with our emails, and it is working!
It’s election time! And your OpenMedia team has been working very hard to make sure Canadians have a direct and easy way to demand candidates from all parties speak up for the Internet we love and deserve. That’s why we’ve launched a handy tool for you to tell your candidates to become a pro-Internet leader and support our action plan crowdsourced by more than 250,000 Canadians. And guess what? It’s working! Yesterday morning, Green Party leader Elizabeth May was the first party leader to endorse our pro-Internet action plan. And for the past 24 hours, we’ve been hearing from candidates all across the country, an incredible 102 of whom have already declared themselves pro-Internet candidates! Check out this wonderful letter we received from Mark Bigland-Pritchard, a Green Party candidate for the Saskatoon-Grasswood riding:
