Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) and a coalition of civil society, media and labour partners are coordinating a lobbying week from January 23 to 27th, leading up to a national day of action on February 25th, to call for an end to warrantless mass surveillance, a repeal of the AKA Anti-terrorism Act, 2015 (formerly, Bill C-51) and the creation of new laws protecting advocates, whistleblowers and journalists.

Here's a guide which covers how to set up a meeting with your federal Member of Parliament, how to prepare, what to say and how to follow up.
