Hurricane Sandy forces rally cancellation

  • October 29, 2012

A rally that was to be held by advocates of defunding abortion in Ontario has been blown off course by Hurricane Sandy.

The rally, organized by Campaign Life Coalition Youth, was to be held at Queen's Park on Tuesday. But it has been postponed due to predictions for Toronto of high winds and heavy rains from the hurricane that is battering the U.S. eastern seaboard.

Organizers said the event will be held at a date to be determined.

The rally was intended to pressure politicians to cease paying for abortions and start treating it like other elective medical procedures that are not funded by OHIP.
