Is the Fair Elections Act Fair?

Despite widespread opposition, the process moves onwards with the Bill C-23 called the "Fair Elections Act". At the end of March, it passed second reading in the House of Commons by a vote of 149 to 131 – with all opposition parties and independent MPs voting against it. If passed into the Fair Elections Act, it would: eliminate vouching, disallowing voter ID cards as valid identification of residence, change regulations surrounding campaign financing, limit the ability of Canada’s chief electoral officer to speak publicly, and more.
