e-2015 (Credit and debit cards)

Initiated by Anthony Castillo from Lethbridge, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

  • Life is getting more expensive and many Canadians who are working hard and playing by the rules are finding it nearly impossible to get ahead;
  • Canadians are concerned about fairness and transparency from banks when it comes to credit card use;
  • In this day and age it is nearly impossible to function without a credit card, but banks aren’t treating clients with the respect they deserve; and
  • Canadians are carrying more household debt than ever before, and with interest rates rising, people are struggling to make ends meet.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to support Bill C-419, the Credit Card Fairness Act, as it will empower credit card holders to make informed decisions, pay off debt faster, and achieve greater financial freedom.
