Court hears arguments on constitutionality of removal of 'honour killing' bus ads
by Paige Parsons
An Edmonton Court of Queen's Bench judge will rule on whether the pulling of ETS bus ads that were criticized as anti-Muslim was a justifiable infringement of freedom of expression.
During a hearing held Friday morning, lawyers for the City of Edmonton and the American Freedom Defense Initiative each made arguments concerning the 2013 decision to remove the ads including the text "Muslim Girls Honor Killed by Their Families" and "Is your family threatening you? Is there a fatwa on your head?"
The ad also featured a logo for SIOA (Stop Islamization of America) and a link to FightforFreedom.us, which warns about the "encroachment of Islam on western civilization."
