Holy debate erupts on TTC
by Ashlee Lacasse
A Muslim advertisement stating "There is no god but Allah" has started a vigorous debate amongst TTC riders and sparked a review from the Toronto Transit Commission Advertising Commission Group.
After five complaints were made, a working group including Councillor Karen Stintz has decided to allow the advertisement to remain in the Kennedy subway station.
"The decision to reject or accept an ad isn't decided by whether someone takes offence to it or not," said TTC spokesman Brad Ross. "It doesn't violate the Human Rights Code. We can't reject an ad because it espouses one view on religion."
