The biggest threat to Canada's net

To our Members of Parliament:

The proposed amendments to Bill C-11 are a threat to Canada's Internet freedom - these copyright rules go beyond what's necessary to stifle the free flow of information among us. As concerned citizens, we call on you to show true leadership by respecting Canadians' right to a free and open internet.

As early as next week, the same corporations that tried to sabotage our online freedom in Washington will try their luck in Ottawa - but our movement is perfectly poised to kill this latest threat. Two weeks ago 3 million Avaazers helped beat back America's global attack on our Internet -- now is our chance to win again on our home turf.

Canada’s new SOPA-like law would let corporations go after media sharing sites like YouTube - and could even deny Internet access for citizens merely accused of infringing copyright laws! MPs have tried to pass this law three times before and failed -- if we can target Parliament’s most vulnerable conservative MPs and show them that Internet censorship could cost them votes and even their re-election, we can save our Internet again.

Parliament could vote on the bill this as early as next week -- let’s raise a massive national call to the weakest Harper MPs and force them to bow out of the vote to save their own skin.
