Organization that had controversial Edmonton bus signs pulled will be refunded
by Kevin Maimann
The American organization that had its ads pulled from city buses this week will get a refund.
The controversial ads —paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop Islam of America — read, "Is your family threatening you? Is there a Fatwa on Your Head?" and featured seven photos of young women, some wearing hijabs. Smaller text read, "Muslim Girls Honor Killed by Their Families."
The group had paid $500 per sign for five signs to run for four weeks, but they were all pulled after six days due to a "handful" of public complaints from people who felt the signs were anti-Muslim.
