For many Canadians, social media has become a popular space to talk about politics.

By allowing users to freely express their opinions and exchange ideas, social media can be a powerful tool to strengthen our democracy. But with Canadians encountering more anger and incivility online than off, something has gone wrong.

There’s been a lot of talk about what governments and social media platforms should do to improve our digital discourse—and their action is needed. But we at the Samara Centre for Democracy think that online civility can begin with citizens learning how to disagree better.

The tips offered in these infographics, illustrated by Joren Cull, aim to change the way we discuss politics online.
