Alongside my colleagues Toronto City Councillors Paula Fletcher (Ward 30), Mary Fragedakis (Ward 29) and TDSB Trustee Jennifer Story (Ward 15), I'm calling on the Wynne government for an injunction to block the use of disturbing images being distributed to homes and displayed on streets in our area by an anti-abortion group.
You can read the full text of my letter here.
If you agree that something should be done to protect our community, please add your voice by signing my petition and call on the Attorney General to seek an injunction against the distribution of these images.
Peter Tabuns, MPP
UPDATE: We will be hosting a public meeting on Thursday August 31 to discuss the letter to the Attorney General and ways to organize against these images. Full details of the event are HERE.
Dear Hon. Yasir Naqvi, MPP Ministry of the Attorney General
We the undersigned call on you to seek an injunction blocking the use of horrifying images by an anti-abortion group, the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform, which is distributing flyers and displaying placards on major streets in our area.
Our concern is to protect children and adults who would be traumatized by distribution or display of these images.
We would ask you to seek an injunction based on the need to prevent a public nuisance. Should it not be possible to proceed with an injunction we would ask that you develop and bring forward legislation to prohibit the use of such graphic and disturbing images.
