Vote for Digital Future Pledge

Vote for Digital Future Pledge

“I care about affordable access, free expression, and a surveillance-free Internet. I pledge to vote in the federal election.”

This campaign is hosted by OpenMedia. We will protect your privacy and keep you informed about this campaign and others. Find our privacy policy here.

If enough people pledge to vote we'll have the leverage we need
to put our crowdsourced plan into law.

What we're voting for:

Privacy

  1. Get a Warrant: Completely repeal Bill C-51, and forbid the government from spying on the private communications and activities of law-abiding residents of Canada, whether domestically or through international partners, without a warrant issued by an open court.
  2. End Mass Surveillance: Put an end to blanket surveillance and the bulk collection of metadata.
  3. Embrace Accountability: Stronger oversight for government spy agencies, and increased transparency for government surveillance activities.

Access

  1. Boost Choice: Open up our networks by creating fair rules that ensure Canadians enjoy unrestrained choice from more affordable independent Internet providers.
  2. Expand Access: Follow the lead of countries like Australia and devote significant investments to ensure faster, cheaper next-generation Internet services across the country.
  3. Promote Innovation: Embrace citizen-based oversight of telecom networks to ensure net neutrality (Internet openness) rules prevail on all platforms.

Free Expression

  1. Respect Creators: Protect the public domain and empower creators of all types to remix, reuse, and recycle content into new works.
  2. Prioritize Free Expression: Copyright and other digital policies should promote access to knowledge and culture, enable online commerce and prevent censorship.
  3. Embrace Democratic Processes: Copyright and other digital policies should be produced through participatory, democratic and transparent processes.
