Write the Premier to Support Anti-SLAPP Legislation
Urge Members of the BC Legislature to cosponsor Anti-SLAPP Legislation
The BC Legislature needs to hear from you! Please urge your Members of the BC Legislature to cosponsor anti-SLAPP legislation. This important legislation will protect all people in the province who speak out at public proceedings and on matters of public concern. Quebec has anti-SLAPP laws, and an anti-SLAPP bill is before the Ontario Legislature. The BC NDP introduced an anti-SLAPP Act in May 2015 but we need widespread support to make have this passed as a law. Anti-SLAPP legislation is needed now – it will protect us all if we speak out on issues of public concern. For more information about anti-SLAPP legislation in Canada and the USA click here.
