Petition : Stand up for Canadian democracy
Sign the petition against C-23, the unfair election act!
February 11th, 2014 - 12:03pm
New Conservative election laws will make it tougher for Canadians to vote – but easier for well-connected insiders to play money politics.
Under Bill C-23, Voter ID cards will no longer be accepted. This will prevent thousands of students, seniors and Aboriginal people from voting.
That’s on top of the 120,000 Canadians who had a neighbour vouch for them and who will be turned away next election.
While Conservatives are making it tougher for everyday Canadians, they’re also making it easier for well-connected insiders.
Stephen Harper’s election reforms will increase the influence of big money in politics by raising individual donations to $1500 and allowing candidates to give $5000 to their own campaign.
In addition, it would remove the Director General of Elections Canada's investigative powers.
Let’s protect our democracy from voter suppression tactics. Let’s fight back.
