People from coast to coast to coast have been taking action against Bill C-51. We need to keep up the momentum. The Bill passed out of committee this week with a handful of very superficial changes, and the Harper Government has already sent this bill to the Senate for a preliminary review. So when the Members of Parliament return to Ottawa on April 20th, they may face a vote quite soon afterwards. Then, with the preliminary review, the time Bill C-51 spends in Senate may be shortened.
Members of Parliament are in their ridings from April 3rd to April 19th. Openmedia.com has set up a thunderclap on Twitter, scheduled for 10AM on April 13th, and scroll down for a overarching calender and links to local actions planned for the week of education, April 13th to 20th, here.
Please join these actions and let's stand up of our civil liberties.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
