Petition:
Opposition to Bill 61

Petition text

WHEREAS the situation caused by Covid-19 is exceptional, constantly evolving and that the Québec population has followed the instructions of Public Health since the start of the pandemic;

WHEREAS the indefinite extension of the state of health emergency would give the Government of Québec exceptional power without the need for accountability and would continue to create inequities;

WHEREAS economic recovery should not come at the expense of the integrity of the principles of the rule of law;

WHEREAS Bill 61 would give the Government of Québec expanded power in the areas of expropriation and environment without the appropriate questioning;

WHEREAS Bill 61 would bring to the fore all indicators of corruption while introducing disproportionate judicial immunity;

We, the undersigned, ask the Government of Québec :

  • To thoroughly review the text of Bill 61;
  • To respect our freedoms and our fundamental rights;
  • To commit keeping the foundations of our democracy intact, by allowing the opposition and the population to demand accountability from members of the government.

The signing period for this petition is over.
