Our rights are worth a fight

This is a test r1

Together, we can defend our rights

Dear BCCLA supporter,

What if I told you that your provincial government had passed a new law without input from stakeholders? What if I told you this new law allowed cabinet ministers to write new laws without oversight from the public and without approval from the Legislative Assembly?

You’d call this an abuse of power, right?

That’s exactly what has happened in BC and Alberta.

Bill 10 in Alberta and Bill 19 in BC are both new laws that expand government powers and limit accountability.

This is a problem. These new laws limit your ability to hold your elected officials accountable. This an unjust limit on your fundamental democratic right.

This cannot stand. We want to protect your democratic rights, and make sure government overreach is held to account.

We’re gearing up for a fight. We’re going to pressure the government in BC to roll back the powers they’ve given themselves under Bill 19. We’re also... seeking leave to intervene in a court case in Alberta challenging the government’s sweeping new powers under Bill 10.

We know these legislative and court fights can be confusing. It can be hard to keep up.

But we’re determined to keep up. We’re determined to stand up for what we believe in.

Please make a donation of $50 to support this urgent work to hold government overreach to account.

This is work that requires time, resources, and creative tactics. We need to draft policy briefs, meet with government officials, go to court, and connect with community partners as we team up in the fight.

This is hard work, but our democratic rights are worth it. We know you think so too.

Please make a donation today. Let’s fight for our rights together.

Thank you,

Latoya Farrell (she/her/hers)
