I oppose C377

I am opposed to the adoption of Bill C-377 and I ask MPs of the Parliament of Canada to vote against it. 

Bill C-377 from Conservative MP Russ Hiebert, aims to force labour organizations to disclose a significant amount of financial and sensitive information.

This bill does not mention that unions are democratic organizations and already disclose their financial statements to members who request it.

• This bill will create a mountain of bureaucratic red tape (Approximately 25,000 organizations must submit details of ALL financial transactions over $5,000. Such transactions will then be published on the website of Revenue Canada). 

• This bill is extremely expensive (cost estimates vary between $10.6 million and $150 million for the establishment of the registry).

• This bill would violate the protection of privacy (the disclosure of of information of private nature is at the heart of this bill).

GOAL: 10,000 signatures

  • Once again the Harper government is trying to silence its critics. This is an attack against organizations that represent the average working women and men of this country.
