Open Letter to Prime Minister Harper: Bill C-51 cannot be salvaged; it must be scrapped
Monday, April 13, 2015
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P., Prime Minister of Canada
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2
Dear Prime Minister,
We, the undersigned organizations and individuals, call for the immediate and unconditional dismissal of Bill C-51: Anti-Terrorism Act, 2015. We are extremely concerned by the potential impact of this legislation, which fails to strike the balance between protecting Canadians and safeguarding our cherished rights and freedoms as protected in the Charter.

In the past few weeks, tens of thousands of Canadians have stood shoulder-to-shoulder to oppose the government’s “secret police” Bill C-51 at events across the country, while over 110,000 have spoken out online.
Together, we’re making a huge difference. Before Canadians learned about the dangers posed by Bill C-51, only 17% opposed it. But now the majority oppose this reckless, dangerous, and ineffective bill.
