To the Honourable the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, in Legislature Assembled:

The petition of the undersigned, residents of the Province of British Columbia, states that:

Whereas Section 6 of Bill 20 – Election Amendment Act, 2015 provides British Columbians' personal information to political parties in a manner with which it is likely to be exploited to further partisan, political interest;

and Whereas this information could be used to suppress voter turnout, incentivize aggressive fundraising tactics, and increase the questionable use of robocalls;

and Whereas the Office of the Privacy Commissioner – which was not consulted in the drafting of this bill – has raised “deep concerns” about how this information may be used and has urged the government to withdraw these sections;

and Whereas British Columbians were not asked for consent to share their personal information with political parties in this manner;

Your petitioners respectfully request that the Honourable House withdraw Section 6 of Bill 20 – Election Amendment Act, 2015 and all amendments related to it.

Dated 16th day of May, 2015.
 
 
Purpose
This petition will be used to support MLA Andrew Weaver's attempt to stop the passage of Bill 20 in the BC Legislature. It will be used to illustrate the immense opposition of British Columbians to Bill 20.
