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.

    I vehemently oppose Bill -51 as it is unclear what the bill contains. It is apparent that the Harper Government is not forthcoming in the intention of this very important Bill.

    Freedom of speech is part of our “Canadian way” of life. Bill C 51 would disallow freedom of speech. It would make Canadians into strangers to what the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects as fundamental democratic principles by which we have lived since long before we felt it necessary TO have the Charter. We Canadians do not ‘buy’ the current government’s seeming belief that we need protection from terrorism. We already have as much legal and legislated ‘protection’ as we need. I say “NO” to Bill C 51. It is a travesty.
