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 oppose this bill C-51. It trashes our rights to privacy and overreaches the power that is already granted to the government.

    I am thankful for Elizabeth’s action. Let’s also give credit to the NDP who have recognized the dangers in this bill. How to convince Justin that the Libs’ support for Bill C-51 opens Canadians to worse treatment than Maher Arar received at the hands of CSIS and foreign governments, based on secret, untested, incorrect information, with no chance to defend yourself?

    This bill takes us down a steep road to loss of freedom and the police state. Parliament should be ashamed of itself and why is Elizabeth May the only opposer? We must stand up for Canada’s rights and freedoms.

    Keep on pushing this. The Liberals have no principles and just follow polls that show Canadians are getting as stupid as Americans on so call security issues.

    I back my MP, Elizabeth May. We don’t need “Big Brother” style attacks on our freedoms. That lets the “government” let the terrorists win, and takes away our freedoms. We do need to use the laws we already have – with proper oversight added.
