Download My Canada Summer Jobs Petition Here
The Trudeau Government has made substantive changes to the Canada Summer Jobs Program. The Liberals are demanding that applicants sign an “attestation” which supports its views.
When applying online for a Canada Summer Job grant, the website will not allow organizations to proceed with the application unless they click the box to affirm their agreement with the attestation. This I believe is a terrible policy decision.
The right to freedom of belief and opinion is guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Hence, we should all be very concerned that the Liberal Government is basing funding decisions on whether or not you hold a certain belief. Governments must respect the freedoms that Canadians enjoy to have different beliefs. Imposing the personal values of Justin Trudeau on a wide variety of groups is not appropriate.
Below you can download a petition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to withdraw the attestation requirement from the Canada Summer Jobs Program application. Just click on the icon.
Please feel free to return it to me when completed (without postage) in order that I can present it in the House of Commons on your behalf.
