PETA goes after the TTC over rejected vegan ads

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are calling out both the TTC and its ad sales agency, Pattison Outdoor, this week for allegedly refusing to take their business.

Lawyers representing PETA say that Pattison has been ignoring queries about running pro-vegan ads throughout Toronto’s transit system for at least two months now.

“What do Toronto officials have against PETA’s freedom of expression to save animals?” reads a blog post on the non-profit organization’s website.

“All the ads proposed by PETA comply with Canadian advertising standards, so as a public transit agency, the commission cannot lawfully refuse to display them.”

Trudeau defends $600M price tag for G7 summit in Quebec

The importance of next month’s G7 summit in Quebec can’t be underestimated, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday as he defended the event’s hefty price tag.

The event can be the perfect forum for the global leadership that is required on issues such as the environment and healthy oceans and the improvement of economic opportunities for women internationally, he told reporters.

“More than that, to have the opportunity for seven allies to gather in a less formal, more relaxed setting, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and a warm welcome, to talk about real issues — it’s extremely important,” Trudeau said at the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu hotel, which will host the summit.
