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. Monday, February 10 there will be a mass call-in to Members of Parliament to stop the Unfair Elections Act. 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.
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.
