The Harper Government has fast tracked Bill C-51 in another dramatic demonstration of how little scrutiny the Harper Government is willing to accord Bill C-51.
The same can’t be said for the rest of us, because Bill C-51 is actually getting a great deal of scrutiny outside the Parliament Buildings. There are a lot of terrible things in this draft legislation, but as a writer I am especially concerned about its assault on Free Speech.
Ordinarily I only blog about Canadian Politics sporadically, but this incredible danger Bill C-51 poses to Canadian culture and freedoms, I have been doing everything I can think of to try to stop this assault on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Okay, well, I have to admit there isn’t really a musical… not yet, anyway. Maybe that will be James Gordon’s next project?
But in the mean time, concerned Canadians across this wonderful land have been engaging in peaceful protest in many ways, including the making of Stop Bill C-51 protest songs.
Here are a couple of my favorites:
The Raging Grannies
Canadians at the First Stop Bill C-51 Day of Action Sing “Oh Canada”
Bill C-51 Song (Dennis Jones 2015)
This last one isn’t really a protest song, but it beautifully demonstrates why Bill C-51 must be withdrawn.
