Fair Elections Act

UPDATE: Contempt is winning.

Call your nearest Conservative MP right now, until 330pm today, west coast time. Let them know that their Orwellian-named “Fair” Elections Act is clearly designed to further erode democracy and we see through it. See below for where you can contact such MPs.

We can’t let them ram this through, or else we’ll become even more of a banana republic.

Hold the phone

Without warning, the Harper government is ramming through legislation that will seriously undermine democracy in Canada. It was just introduced a few days ago, but could be adopted by the House of Commons as early as Monday or Tuesday.

But with enough pressure on Conservative MPs, we can stop this bill or at least slow it down.

Join us on Parliament Hill on Monday, February 10 for a mass call-in to Members of Parliament to stop the Unfair Elections Act. 

If you can’t be there in person, including if you are outside Ottawa, join the synchronized action by calling the Conservative MP closest to your riding from wherever you are from 12:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EST.

Stop the unfair Elections Act

Harper’s new Unfair Elections Act: 

  • would make it harder for people to vote
  • would disproportionately impact students and youth, Indigenous people, seniors, people on low-incomes, and people who didn’t vote Conservative in previous elections
  • does nothing to bring to justice the people behind the widespread election fraud in 2011
  • would actually make it harder to catch perpetrators of election fraud like Pierre Poutine

Call for Democracy

WHEN: Starting at 12:30p.m. EST. At 1:00 p.m. a Member of Parliament will receive the petition for it to be tabled in Parliament. You can still sign it here.

WHERE: By the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill in Ottawa & from coast to coast to coast

WHAT: Gather on the Hill, bring your cell phone, and join a mass call-in to MPs. If you are on Twitter, join the tweet-in by calling on your MP to stop the Unfair Elections Act and use the hashtag #UnfairElxnsAct.
