Bill C-23, the ironically named “Fair Elections Act” is a bill that will dangerously change how, and if, some Canadians can participate in our democracy. This bill suppresses voters through tactics like making voter identification harder and prohibiting Elections Canada from encouraging Canadians to vote. Diane Woloschuk (wallace-chuck) is the President of the Canadian Teacher’s Federation, representing more than 200,000 public school teachers across Canada. She spoke with Off the Hour’s Andre Goulet to discuss the threat Bill C-23 poses to democratic participation in this country, and what we can do to stop it.
