Take action to protect democracy in your community
In early February, the Harper government introduced Bill C-23, the so-called Fair Elections Act. If passed, the 244-page bill would result in sweeping changes to Canada’s election rules that would undermine our democratic rights. As a result, opponents have dubbed the bill the “Unfair” Elections Act.
The Harper government is trying to push the bill through Parliament with little debate and even less public scrutiny. Public opposition has been strong and is growing rapidly.
