Justice Centre President John Carpay will be in Ottawa on Wednesday, April 10, to deliver 50,000+ petition signatures against a proposed threat to freedom of expression in Canada 

OTTAWA, ON: The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms will present more than 50,000 petition signatures against the Online Harms Act to the Minister of Justice and all Parliamentarians tomorrow. At 10:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday, April 10, Justice Centre President John Carpay will deliver brief remarks on the Online Harms Act and Canadians’ response to it in front of the Prime Minister’s Office at 62 Wellington Street in Ottawa.

The Canadians who signed our petition assert that:

  • The Online Harms Act threatens freedom of expression in Canada.
    Canadians’ online expression should not be censored unless it violates the Criminal Code.
  • No Canadian should face an anonymous human rights complaint for what they have said.
  • No Canadian should be hauled before a court or punished merely because somebody “fears” they will say something hateful.
  • No Canadian should face life imprisonment for their expression.

For further information on our position against the Online Harms Act, please read our statement.

The Justice Centre thanks every Canadian who participated in their democracy by signing this petition. More than 50,000 Canadians have said “no” to censorship. The Minister of Justice and all Parliamentarians should respond by amending the Online Harms Act accordingly.
