With thanks to Lawyers Against the War:

Stop Bill C-51

A bill that endangers democratic rights to expression, association and dissent and introduces risks of arbitrary arrest, detention and surveillance. 

Spread the message that: 

  • Your MP must vigorously oppose and vote against Bill C-51: a 62-page bill that seeks to create two new, and amend seven existing statutes;


  • Bill C-51 threatens individuals with arbitrary arrest, prosecution and surveillance for exercising rights to expression, association and dissent;


  • Bill C-51 must be scrapped and can’t be repaired;


  • “The bill ought to be rejected as a whole. Repair is impossible,” say Canadian lawyers Clayton Ruby and Nader Hasan;


  • “…We cannot protect our freedoms by sacrificing them,” says Tom Mulcair;
