Defend Our Rights and Freedoms

The Harper Conservatives introduced a new anti-terrorism bill that is invasive, overreaching and dangerously vague. Acts of terrorism are a threat that must be addressed, but C-51 is not primarily an anti-terrorism law. We already have anti-terror laws. 

See Elizabeth's press release: “The words found under the definition of ‘activities,’ which affect the ‘security of Canadians,’ are so broad that this can apply to almost any activity, including nonviolent civil disobedience. This could treat peaceful protesters as potential terrorists.”

Toronto Star Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is "the only opposition MP with enough guts to critique the content of the Conservative government’s new anti-terror bill".

Green MPs continue to defend civil liberties in the House of Commons.  Stand with Elizabeth May today — add your name.

Tell your MP that sacrificing individual rights and freedoms is not the solution to the threat of terrorism.

    C51 is a very bad law, it will not protect us from terrorists but instead will take away our traditional Canadian freedoms and we can be subject to harassment by a new secret and unaccountable police force centred on CSIS. To put it more directly; Bill C51 is uncanadian, it has the potential to do a lot of damage to our democracy. Please withdraw Bill C51! Prime Minister Harper, it seems to me that your real motive for drafting this law, is not to protect Canadians, but to sow distrust. Members of organizations critical of government policy will begin to suspect that their organization has been infiltrated by government secret police spies, people will start to mistrust one another. Please withdraw this Bill !

    I do not want to lose any more of my rights to freedom Mr. Harper, you are tuning this country into a dictatorship and you will see people not be apathetic any more and your scare tactics will not work any more either.

    All we have to defend mother nature and human rights with this federal government in power is our grass roots movements to protest the lack of environmental protection. This bill could compromise our ability to legally gather to make our voices heard and respect and common sense win over corporate profits.

    Why are we not calling for the arrest of this illegally elected “majority” that repeatedly investigates themselves for election fraud?
