Ontario Liberals introduce draconian anti-free speech legislation
On October 4, 2017, Liberal MPP Yasir Naqvi announced that the Kathleen Wynne government will ban all pro-life prayer vigils and gatherings from the vicinity of abortion mills, including those peacefully held on public property. This means that in future, 40 Days For Life campaigns will become illegal in Ontario, along with other forms of pro-life expression. Read CLC’s reaction to the proposed legislation.

If you live in Ontario, please sign our petition against the “No Free Speech Zone” legislation here, and share it with your friends. CLC is aiming to deliver petitions to all 107 of Ontario’s elected Members of Provincial Parliament. As such, we’re asking for volunteers who would be willing to personally approach the MPP at their constituency office and ask that they present the petition in the legislature, on behalf of constituents. If you’re interested in being one of our pro-life ambassadors for this petition campaign, please email us
