- Many legal/political initiatives are underway, with more to come – and groups ranging from Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies to the National Council of Canadian Muslims are actively lending support
- A local feminist organizer has put together a petition, below, to be presented in the Ontario Legislature by Liberal MPP Arthur Potts and in the Commons by Liberal MP Nate Erskine-Smith…print it off and get others to sign, then scan and send to me here!
