Pass laws to stop election fraud robocalls across Canada

    1. Petition by

      Democracy Watch

Election fraud robocalls were received by tens of thousands of voters in more than 230 ridings during the spring 2011 federal election, and were also used to mislead voters in some recent provincial elections.

We need political party leaders across Canada to step up and take real action now to pass strong laws to stop false election robocalls and ensure anyone who tries a fraud call will be caught and penalized.

Many voters had one of their key democracy rights violated, and this must not be allowed to happen ever again to anyone in Canada!

Please sign this petition calling for strong laws with no loopholes to be passed by the federal government, and every provincial and territorial government, to ensure fraudulent anonymous robocalls and mass messages can’t be used to try to win any election or by-election in Canada, and to strengthen election law enforcement and penalties.

Stop election fraud robocalls, and strengthen enforcement of election laws NOW!

      I value every attempt to turn Canada into a democracy. I got a call, but didn't remember which election it was in: I'd voted early in the advance polls so it made no difference to my vote. But it might have. I am disabled and might not have been able to take the extra steps to get to vote.

      Shame on whoever did it, and can they please be brought to justice!

      Free and fair elections are the bare minimum for a democratic system. Weak, unenforced laws undermine the legitimacy of the system.

      We are supposed to live in a free, democratic society. The current government doesn't believe in either of these things, and has to be stopped whenever it choses to take away our freedoms, which they did by making sure that their candidates were elected by illegal means. Our democracy is dying the death of a 1000 cuts with this dictatorial government in power. It only cares about its' own agenda, and will do whatever it takes to make sure that it is able to shape Canada in it's own image, no matter the cost to our democracy.

      This garbage shouldn't be allowed in a democratic society.

      But it is what the Harper Government™ has done and supports.
