Protesting Taser Usage


Canadians across the country have responded with outrage following the October 14th death of Robert Dziekanski. This Saturday, November 24th, a group of Torontonians are planning on having their collective voices heard. The protest is organized to start at 12:00 noon in Queen's Park. The aim of the event is to continue to provide media awareness to the issue at hand as well as to offer a moment of silence and a candlelight vigil for Dziekanski. Similar protests will be held on Saturday in Vancouver and Victoria.

Numerous speakers are scheduled to attend including the NDP justice critic, Liberal critic, and representatives from the Canadian Civil Liberties Coalition and the Polish Consulate.
