After quitting the US Army over the war in Iraq in 2003 Colonel Ann Wright was subsequently banned from entering Canada. She successfully entered Canada yesterday, and will speak against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in Toronto tonight at an event sponsored by the Council of Canadians, CODEPINK, Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW), Science for Peace and rabble.ca:
International Student Centre (ISC), Cumberland House, Cumberland Rm #102

University of Toronto
Other speakers include members of Toronto's Iraq War Resisters and Stuart Trew from the Council of Canadians.
Join us at this event to better understand Canada's wars and the implications for security and border policies.
rabble.ca will be podcasting this event.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
