Speak up against Bill C-13

I am writing this letter in opposition of Peter MacKay’s online spying Bill C-13.

I am writing this letter in opposition of Peter MacKay’s online spying Bill C-13 which will enable authorities to monitor the private lives of innocent Canadians, without any real oversight.

Victims of these privacy breaches wouldn’t even be informed.

As Canadians, we do not live under a totalitarian police state where internet is under surveillance like it is in China. We are a democracy. Privacy has generally been upheld throughout Canadian history and it’s time to hold onto that privilege, as our country seems to be slipping more and more into fear and surveillance. I urge all Canadians to speak out against this bill of paranoia, stalking, and personal invasion.

I encourage Canadians to learn more about how we can work together to safeguard our privacy at OurPrivacy.ca
