Save Our Security

 Speak Out to Repeal Bill C-51 and Restore Privacy Now

When the government passed Bill C-51, they weakened the privacy rules that keep us all safe.1 Meanwhile, spy agency scandals,2 stingray surveillance,3 and government data leaks have left everyday Canadians afraid for their personal security.4

The new government says it wants to do better. We need to tell them to ensure a future where all of us can experience privacy and security online.

Sign the letter below and tell Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale: “Repeal Bill C-51 and create strong, transparent, and enforceable privacy laws as outlined in Canada’s Privacy Plan.5

Dear Minister Goodale,

The terrible track record of your predecessors, which includes the passage of Bill C-51, has left everyday Canadians deeply worried about government surveillance and the security of their private data.

We all deserve effective legal measures to protect the privacy of every resident of Canada against intrusion by government entities, malicious actors, and abuse by law enforcement.

Specifically, I am calling on you to implement the key recommendations of Canada’s Privacy Plan by completely repealing Bill C-51, ending warrantless access to our private information, putting a stop to mass surveillance, and embracing accountability for our security agencies.

Canada has a unique opportunity to become a global leader in reining in excessive digital surveillance practices. We should lead by example and help set a new global standard for privacy protection in a digital age.

Thank you.
