Over 250,000 people shape action plan to save the Internet
Digital rights group OpenMedia releases comprehensive election platform packed with ideas crowdsourced from Canadians
Digital rights issues have featured prominently in the media recent times. Bill C-51 has sparked nationwide protests. Thousands of Canadians have received threatening and misleading copyright demand letters. And the high cost of Internet and cell phone service has been a recurring bugbear for telecom customers.
Almost 300,000 Canadians have spoken out against draconian Bill C-51; over half-a-million have demanded more affordable Internet and cell phone access; and over 100,000 have stood up for free expression.
The last election was decided by only 6,200 votes. With over half-a-million engaged Canadians, the OpenMedia community has the power to impact the outcome of this election, and is working to make the future of our digital communications a key issue.
OpenMedia is an award-winning community-based organization that safeguards the possibilities of the open Internet. We work toward informed and participatory digital policy by engaging hundreds of thousands of people in protecting our online rights.
