The Canadians who signed the JCCF petition assert that:

  • The Online Harms Act threatens freedom of expression in Canada.
  • Canadians’ online expression should not be censored unless it violates the Criminal Code.
  • No Canadian should face an anonymous human rights complaint for what they have said.
  • No Canadian should be hauled before a court or punished merely because somebody “fears” they will say something hateful.
  • No Canadian should face life imprisonment for their expression.
