Public Interest Alberta and The Council of Canadians delivered petitions to the office of Conservative MP Laurie Hawn with signatures of over 5,500 Albertans calling for the federal government's so-called "Fair Elections Act" to be fixed or scrapped. The petition opposes the unnecessarily strict voter ID requirements that could stop hundreds of thousands of people, including youth, Aboriginal, and low-income citizens from voting in the next election.The event was covered by CBC News and can be viewed here at 3:10 in the video.The initiative is being organized nation-wide by Leadnow, The Council of Canadians, and the Canadian Federation of Students.
