Parliament is on summer break; the online spying bill will have to wait
The Conservative Party said they'd pass the online spying bill in their first 100 days as majority government and we, together, stopped them. The House of Commons has adjourned, and MPs won't be back in Parliament until September.
Given Public Safety Minister Vic Toews' statements and ongoing PR push, this invasive bill is very likely to reappear. So our job now is to spend the summer engaging as many Canadians as possible into growing and supporting our list of Pro-Privacy MPs, so we can push back even harder in the fall.
We've moved politics, before, and now we've pushed a majority government to press pause on the warrantless spying scheme that they've promised to push since the election. Together we can do anything.

Thank you all so much for everything you do. Onward!
