Edmonton Transit faces lawsuit after cancelling anti-honour killing ads
Sun News Network
A Calgary-based legal defence group is coming to the aid of American human rights advocates whose ads have been stripped from Edmonton buses.
In a press release, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) announced a court action in support of the non-profit American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), whose ads encouraged Canadian Muslim women and girls to come to them for legal protection from so-called "honour killings."
"Is your family threatening you? Is there a fatwa on your head? We can help," the ads read, underneath photos of women murdered in high-profile honour killing cases.
