The four of us most certainly know the enormity of the responsibility of keeping Canada safe, something always front of mind for a prime minister. We have come together with 18 other Canadians who have served as Supreme Court of Canada justices, ministers of justice and of public safety, solicitors-general, members of the Security and Intelligence Review Committee and commissioners responsible for overseeing the RCMP and upholding privacy laws.

Tens of thousands are speaking up to help stop Stephen Harper's Secret Police Bill in a movement that's bringing together Canadians from across the political spectrum.
Here's how one grassroots principled Conservative, Joe Jesso, is pushing back - he's sent this hard-hitting letter to his local MP Gary Schellenberger. We're encouraging supporters of all the parties to contact their MP - you can use our online tool right here, or locate your MP's contact details by entering your postal code here.
Dear Mr. Schellenberger.
As a long time Conservative supporter, I have to voice my displeasure in how the government is trying to erode the basic rights of Canadians. In particular, I am speaking of Bill C-51. The bill is the 3rd attempt the Conservatives have made to remove the privacy rights of Canadians.
