The next federal election is just weeks away, and this is our best chance to shape the next government’s vision for pro-Internet policies.
From updating the laws that shape our Internet, to facing global threats to encryption, the next government is going to shape policies that will affect the Internet and our digital rights for years to come.
The candidates in this election need to hear what issues matter most to you – and we know that the future of Canada’s Internet is a priority. Whether it’s the cost of your cell phone bills, concerns about facial recognition, or dangerous website blocking, your voice means more now than ever.
If enough of us message our local candidates right now, we can get them talking about the issues, learn about their positions, and together, provide people the information they need when deciding who to vote for. We’ve put together our platform for the future of the Internet as a guide. But you know what matters most to you – and it’s time to make your voice heard.
Send a message to the candidates in your riding explaining what issues matter most to you, and ask them where they stand.
Dear [Name of Candidate],
The Internet is the backbone of the 21st-century economy. It has become an indispensable part of daily life.
But it’s no secret that in Canada we pay some of the highest prices in the world for Internet, for subpar service. But it doesn't stop there. For those of who who are online, we're facing increasing threats to the security of our most personal, sensitive information, and seeing proposals for things like website blocking that threaten our right to free expression.
As a candidate running for office in [[riding]], you’re hoping to form the next government, which will shape these issues for years to come. I would like to hear what your party’s policies are for the future of Canada’s Internet.
Sincerely, [your name]
