Toronto Rally in the Media

Rally at Danish consulate in Toronto in support of publication of cartoons by Canada.com

Globe & Mail on the rally

"Some of us will not stand idly and meekly by while a principle fundamental to any free society is violently and senselessly threatened," event co-organizer Daniel Dale told the cheering crowd of between 100 and 150 people on Saturday.

"We will not stand idly and meekly by while a democracy and ally is violently and senselessly attacked." Demonstrators waved large Danish flags and carried placards proclaiming the importance of freedom of expression in a democracy. "

Winston,

Thanks a lot for the pictures and the report. I am happy that you went. ;)

By the way, did you see the comments I told you about... It is driving me mad.

The numbers were very low for a city like Toronto. I would call it a bust. Canadians are far too passive. Britain learned a lesson about being passive, it is only a matter of time before we learn a similar lesson unfortunately.

Bacon Eating Atheist Jew :

The numbers are disappointing for a city that large.
Maybe the rally was held a week or 2 too late.
People tend to lose enthusiasm after a story starts to drop out of the news.
