Make the Fair Elections Act actually fair


The federal Conservatives have proposed a new, so-called “Fair Elections Act” (Bill C-23).  The problem is the Act will make federal elections more unfair in 5 key ways.  Fair elections are key to having a democracy, and so the Act must be changed to make elections more, not less, fair.  On April 25th, the Conservatives announced they will make changes to Bill C-23 -- but the changes are not enough to make the bill, or federal elections, fully fair.
