How to email Canadian senators to encourage them to stop the censorship bill

June 12, 2022 I rarely pay attention to Canadian news these days as I left the country many months ago and moved to Costa Rica. However, my attention was directed back to Canada today with the lifting of mandates as I want to visit my kids that are in Canada. I knew there had to be more to the story as this is a common tactic: distract the public attention one place while doing something worse in the background. I have been censored so many times on Twitter and Facebook that I lost count. I remember when I first emailed senators about CETA about 7 years ago. I didn't know where to start because I had never been politically active before. I thought maybe some of my Canadian friends were likely in the same boat so I wrote this blog to reduce the amount of time it takes for people to take this action.

If you have never emailed a senator before and don't know how to do it. Here is how


1. Go into your email and compose a new email.

LETTER TEMPLATE I implore you to ensure that Bill C-11 does not pass in Senate.


Bill C-11 looks like a copy of the Liberals’ deeply flawed Bill C-10 and I feel it is a direct threat to our online Charter-protected freedoms.

The government claims this bill is about “supporting Canadian culture” and “leveling the playing field.”


But Bill C-11 gives the CRTC the power to pick which content gets moved to the top of the search menu and which content gets pushed down where it will never be discovered!


This will all be based on an arbitrary set of criteria suspiciously absent from the bill.


Bill C-11 will not only harm digital-first creators in their ability to succeed and reach global audiences, but it will also hinder consumers’ ability to view and listen to what they want, instead of what the government picks for them.
