Please plan to attend and I will meet you there.
A while ago I informed most of you that I would be taking part in a coalition with other faith groups to protest Muslim prayers in Toronto schools. We had a press conference on Monday July 18 at 5:30 pm which you can view herehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NLZZ7uHfuQ

We announced that we were going to have our first public protest on Monday July 25 at 5:30 pm outside the Toronto District School Board central office. Their address is:
Toronto District School Board
5050 Yonge Street
We are encouraging as many people as possible to join and support us at this important protest. Various people will be there who come from other faith backgrounds to support this cause. Even a number of Muslims are objecting and supporting our protest. Toronto tax payers do not wish to support the implementation of Islamic (shariah) law in our public schools or anywhere in our society. Religious practices are not to be exercised in public schools as set out in the Ontario Education Act. The Lord’s Prayer, Bible readings were removed from Ontario schools in 1988 after the Ontario Court of Appeal made its ruling because people protested that it showed favouritism to Christianity and made others uncomfortable. If Christians are not allowed to express their religious beliefs and practices why are Muslims receiving special treatment? It is imperative that we act on this and voice our opposition to this illegal imposition. Please come and make your voice heard. If you cannot come we covet your prayers.
