When approaching people, start with something friendly and simple, like the following:

"Hi, I'm [YOUR NAME]. I'm helping with an OpenMedia.ca campaign that seeks to stop the federal government from passing legislation that will allow a range of "authorities" to access our online personal information, at any time, without a warrant.

"Would you be willing to add your name to this petition?"

More tips:

  • If they aren't swayed add: "Your signature will have an impact because each time someone signs the petition our MP gets an email to let them know. They need our vote and will be very aware that local constituents expect them to defend our privacy against this costly plan. Will you join over 135,000 Canadians across the country and sign the petition?"
  • If the person asks you more about the details of the bill answer as open and straight forward as you can. For more information and details about online spying legislation check out the FAQs.
  • Try to collect a clearly printed name, address, and email address.
