Do you believe in a tech savvy government?

Do you think the Internet should be accessible to all Canadians?

Is your privacy important to you?

Help me protect what matters most to you in the digital age.

The rapid evolution of technology has put many issues such as privacy, open government and Internet accessibility at the forefront of many current political debates. Since my election in 2011, I have been a strong voice for tougher on-line privacy protections, a passionate advocate for open government, a proponent of an affordable and accessible Internet, and a promoter of a thriving digital economy. As a digital native, I am in touch with the current issues surrounding all things digital and I understand where it is going.

By making a donation today, you will help me continue to be your voice in the tech era in Parliament after the 2015 election and protect your digital rights at a time when our lives are becoming increasingly digitized.

Want to find out more about the type of things your donation can help achieve?

Here are concrete actions that I have taken so far:

-In 2013, I presented bill C-475 to modernize Canada’s privacy laws to better protect Canadians in the digital era. See bill here: http://www.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?DocId=6000116&File=24

-In 2013, I launched a campaign to promote the importance of enhanced privacy protections in the digital age entitled My Privacy Online www.myprivacyonline.ca

-I have been one of the most outspoken critics of the Conservative government’s online snooping agenda. See a video of Charmaine in Parliament here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM9UrcKcpr4

-In 2012, I championed  a crucial committee study on Social Media and Privacy in the Age of Big Data.  See a copy of the report here: http://www.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?DocId=6094136&Language=E&File=9

-I have launched numerous online and in person consultations across the country on issues such as digital literacy, privacy, open government, digital media, Internet accessibility and the digital economy.

Help me prove that resistance is not futile. Any donation, no matter how big or small, will go a long way to keeping me in Parliament and to keep fighting for what matters most to you in the digital age.

 

Thank you for being part of my team!
