... Defend Free Speech: Expand anti-SLAPP legislation

Dear friends and supporters,

While we are encouraged by the passage of anti-SLAAP legislation in BC, we know the fight to protect people from being silenced by targeted lawsuits is far from over.

That is why we are fighting to bring anti-SLAPP legislation to every province and territory.

Can you help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 by April 1st to help us extend anti-SLAPP laws from coast to coast to coast?

Help us expand freedom of expression protections for everyone by making a donation today.

DONATE NOW

We are committed to this fight not only because it is the right thing to do, but because people lacking this protection somewhere can be a direct threat to everyone everywhere due to “forum shopping.”

Purple indicates Anti-Slapp protection

This is when powerful organizations file lawsuits in jurisdictions without anti-SLAPP legislation, like Manitoba, to target individuals that live in jurisdictions that do have anti-SLAPP legislation, like Ontario. Corporate bullies are already trying to exploit this and we need push back before hard-won protections are undermined.

Journalists, activists and community groups should not live in fear that their free expression could make them a target of costly legal action.

Help us close this dangerous loophole by expanding anti-SLAPP protections across Canada.

Please make a donation to help us bring this protection to everyone in Canada!

Sincerely,

Meghan McDermott
Staff Lawyer, Policy
