Author's Note:

From Tom Muclair, NDP leader (Official Opposition)

It's done! Conservative and Liberal MPs joined forces to pass Bill C-51, the so called anti-Terrorism Act.

New Democrats worked hard to amend C-51, and strongly condemned it passage. However, with no regrets about keeping the worst aspects of the bill, the Harper government and Trudeau Liberals came together to vote for C-51. Watch the vote here: http://parlvu.parl.gc.ca/parlvu/timeBandit/PowerBrowser.aspx?contententityid=12910&gefdesc=english*&lang=en&startposition=14932

While we tried everything to make the government backtrack, and to convince the Liberals to do the right thing, in the end Mr. Trudeau and his MPs chose fear over defending our way of life.

Canadians deserve better.

I am proud to lead a party that fights for its principles and stands up for Canadians. We listened to the concerns of thousands of Canadians and the many experts who believe Bill C-51 will erode our rights and freedoms, and ultimately make our democracy weaker. I want to assure you that an NDP-led government will undo the damage caused by C-51 and other wrong-headed legislation imposed by the Harper government.

Again, I appreciate your interest to build a better Canada—one that respects the rights and freedoms of a true democratic society. I encourage you to share my email with your friends and family.

All the best,

Leader of the Official Opposition
