Dear Parliament: Say no to the Internet Lockdown

No Internet Blockade

Internet law expert Michael Geist recently revealed that behind-the-scenes, Big Media is pushing for such strong powers that, if accepted, could lead to “a radical reform of the Internet in Canada”. He writes:

Taken together, the proposals would require Internet providers to block access to foreign sites, take down content without court oversight, and disclose subscriber information without a warrant.

We’re talking about mass Internet surveillance and censorship. We have to stop these restrictions on free expression, privacy, and innovation.

Canada’s politicians are set to make a decision any day, setting the course for copyright and the Internet that will last for years. Please send a message to your MP and the government by filling out the form on the right.

Every single message sent will also cc the ministers responsible for Copyright Bill C-11, which could make all the difference for Canada’s Internet. Just fill in the form to join the 55,000+ Canadians who have spoken out on this issue
