Two days ago, Joyce Arthur, Executive Director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, published an open letter to Abbotsford City Council demanding the retraction of a permit. The permit allowed a pro-life group in the area to set up a memorial displaying the number of abortions in Canada every week. ARPA’s legal counsel responded today with a two-page open letter, drawing attention to Ms. Arthur’s mischaracterization of the law and encouraging the City Council to continue to stand up for freedom of expression. The letter is attached below.
ARPA suggests that our readers, especially in the Fraser Valley, to send words of support to the City Council.
