Jason Kenney is trying to silence working Albertans
Make sure our voices are heard!
Jason Kenney and his UCP government are trying to shut us up and shut us down. With their new anti-democracy gag law, the Elections Statutes Amendment Act, they want to strip away the voices of working Albertans and prevent us from advocating on issues that impact Alberta’s workers.
This new law is a clear attempt by the UCP to help Kenney save his leadership and wiggle out from the RCMP investigation—and silence their critics before the next election.
The Alberta Federation of Labour has been fighting for working Albertans since 1912, and will not back down to Kenney.
You can help by joining our campaign. Make no mistake, Jason Kenney is trying to silence us. By joining our campaign, we’ll be able to keep you up-to-date on all the things working Albertans are doing to #StandUpToKenney, no matter what he does—until the UCP is finally defeated in the next election. Together we can protect the voices of working Albertans and send a loud and clear message to Kenney that we won’t be silenced.
Join us and stand up to Kenney to protect the voices of Alberta’s workers.
*Bill 81 says no group which has criticized the government can register as a so-called Third-Party Advertiser (TPA). Without being able to register as a TPA, the AFL will not be able to run public advocacy campaigns on issues of concern to Alberta workers.
Bill 81 also says that anyone who has voiced opposition to the UCP or its policies will be deemed as an “affiliate” of the NDP – and, therefore, will also be ineligible to use the tools of 21st-century advocacy campaigning.
