Stop the Unfair Elections Act

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

You ran for election promising to repeal the undemocratic provisions in the so-called “Fair” Elections Act. The government could do this by passing Bill C-33.

Instead, you are breaking your promise. I want to know why.

I call on your government to stop stalling and pass Bill C-33 in time for Elections Canada to make the necessary changes before the next election. I also call on you to direct the government’s lawyers to stop fighting against the Charter challenge to repeal the undemocratic elements in the act.

It’s time for you to keep your promise and put an end to unfair elections.
