Pass laws to stop election fraud robocalls across Canada

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!
