Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled
With an increasingly growing number, 64% of Canadians use Facebook and other social media as their primary form of communication;
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that one of the fundamental freedoms Canadians possess is section 2(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; and
By not defining the terms "hate speech" and controlling who determines what hate speech is, the Prime Minister is violating the rights and freedoms of all Canadians.
We, the undersigned, Canadians, call upon the Government of Canada to (a) have the people draft an internet based Constitution; (b) allow the free flow of communication, ideas and debate to flourish unabashed or oppressed from any government, religion or institution, and the protection from persecution and censorship based on ones beliefs thoughts or opinions; and (c) to entrust the people to decide what information they deem themselves suitable for publication or distribution, regardless of creed, race or ideology.
