As well, the Act makes voter identification harder and prohibits Elections Canada from encouraging Canadians to vote

“The Unfair Elections Act is also a way to cover up the electoral fraud that took place during the last election. The Federal Court found that there was widespread fraudulent activity, that it was targeted at non-Conservative voters, and that it reduced voter turnout. And, most damning of all, the judge stated in his verdict that “the most likely source of the information used to make the misleading calls was the CIMS database maintained and controlled by the CPC [Conservative Party of Canada].” —[Source: Unfair Elections Act’ looks more and more like a cover-up by Maude Barlow, Jessica McCormick, thestar.com, March 11, 2013

Let People Vote by Canadian Federation of Students

OVERVIEW

Bill C-23, the ironically named “Fair Elections Act” is a bill that will dangerously change how, and if, some Canadians can participate in our democracy. This bill suppresses voters through tactics like making voter identification harder and prohibiting Elections Canada from encouraging Canadians to vote.

Not only is the Fair Elections Act a threat to our democratic rights as Canadians, the Conservative government has attempted to make these changes with zero public consultation.

We believe that this is wrong. All Canadians should be able to vote, and the government should support, not discourage us from participating in our democracy.
