Stop Online Spying - Letter Writing Team,
Earlier this spring, you sent letters to your local newspaper editors opposing Bill C-30, otherwise known as lawful access. But here’s the thing, you weren’t alone. Hundreds of Canadians joined you and because of your actions, over** 70 Stop Online Spying opinion letters were printed in newspapers all across the country! **
However, despite a massive public outcry, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews recently proclaimed the government is still “intent on proceeding” with his unpopular warrantless online spying bill. In response, Canadians are calling on their MPs to take a public stand against the online spying scheme.
The avalanche of Stop Online Spying letters was credited with turning public opinion against the government’s invasive, warrantless, and costly online spying legislation. With your help we can do it again. We know MPs feel the heat from local media.
We’ve also wittnessed MPs respond when faced with outcry from within their own ridings—let’s make sure they hear our voices. Share your personal thoughts by writing a letter, and help us stop this plan to give a range of authorities access to the personal information of any Canadian, at any time, without a warrant.
Thank you for helping us spread the facts,
Glyn & Aaron, on behalf of the OpenMedia.ca Team
