For the 2015 Federal Election, we assessed the main parties on the digital policy issues Canadians told us matter most. The grades below are a crowdsourced assessment by your OpenMedia team based on these criteria.
Although we don't endorse any party, we work on these issues every day and want to make sure you know where they stand on the open Internet. You can see how they did below.
Parties' overall grades:
Conservative Party of Canada
New Democratic Party
Liberal Party of Canada
Green Party of Canada
- The Libertarian Party’s strong pro-privacy platform included a full endorsement of OpenMedia's privacy plan. In our assessment, the Libertarian Party is at least as strong as any of the other parties when it comes to advocating for our right to privacy.
- The Pirate Party’s innovative policy crowdsourcing and their positive ideas on copyright, privacy reform, and net neutrality.
- The anti-C51 stance of the Forces et Démocratie and Bloc Quebecois
- The decision of the Christian Heritage Party to oppose Bill C-51 because it would "involve a sacrifice of freedoms and privacy with no commensurate gain in safety and security."
