Bill C-51 passes Senate - Speak out now to repeal the Conservative’s Secret Police Bill
June 10, 2015
Despite public outcry and protest, the Senate has passed new anti-terror legislation that will beef up Canada's policing and spying powers, despite an outcry from those worried the bill will infringe on individual privacy.
Critics of the bill warn that it will make it easier for security officials to place Canadians under surveillance, as well as monitor their actions online.
The bill passed with 44 votes in favour and 28 against. Bill C-51 is now awaiting royal assent from the governor general.
Tell the leaders of the federal parties you expect them to honour the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and restore the balance at the heart of our democracy.
Tell them to reject fear and repeal C-51.

Take action to stop Bill C-51, "The Secret Police Law"
June 8, 2015
The federal Conservative government, lead by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is about to ram through a reckless, dangerous and ineffective secret police law titled Bill C-51.
Bill C-51 is a profound threat to all our freedoms as Canadians. This damaging legislation is now before the Senate.
If the bill passes, no less than 17 government agencies and even foreign governments will also have access to your sensitive private information.
We're talking about sensitive information that can reveal everything from your financial status to your medical history, your sexual orientation, and even your religious and political beliefs. Is this the Canada we grew up in? Is this the type of government we support?
