Stop Bill C-23 !!

This petition had 3,186 supporters

Bill C-23 is a pre-clearance bill, an agreement for customs and immigration pre-clearance signed by the governments of Stephen Harper and Barack Obama in 2015. Both houses of Congress passed the U.S. version of the bill in December. Bill C-23 takes away the rights of Canadians and gives the Customs officers more power on Canadian soil. The U.S. CUSTOMS WILL HAVE THE POWER TO DETAIN CANADIANS IN CANADA The outcome of bill C-23 is:

- A Canadian going to the U.S. through a pre-clearance area [on Canadian soil] can no longer say: 'I don't like the way this interview is going and also cannot walk out. They can be held and forced to answer questions and if you refuse to comply can be charged with failing to co-operate, which under this bill is an offence they can be arrested for, and then charged and given a federal record.

- Bill C-23 says a U.S. officer can conduct a strip search on a Canadian traveler in a Canadian airport

-U.S. officers to carry sidearms while on duty in Canada

- Permanent residence of Canada can be turned away at US airports to board a flight to Canada if they are suspicious of you.

SIGN! and take back our rights as Canadians. We don't want another version of the travel ban in America.
