Stand up for Canadian democracy
Don’t let Stephen Harper impose voter suppression tactics and prevent Elections Canada from promoting democracy

New Conservative election laws will make it tougher for Canadians to vote – but easier for well-connected insiders to play money politics.
Under Bill C-23, Voter ID cards will no longer be accepted. This will prevent thousands of students, seniors and Aboriginal people from voting.
That’s on top of the 120,000 Canadians who had a neighbour vouch for them and who will be turned away next election.
While Conservatives are making it tougher for everyday Canadians, they’re also making it easier for well-connected insiders.
Stephen Harper’s election reforms will increase the influence of big money in politics by raising individual donations to $1500 and allowing candidates to give $5000 to their own campaign.
Let’s protect our democracy from voter suppression tactics. Let’s fight back.
