TORONTO, ON September 9, 2011 – The annual general meeting of the Catholic Civil Rights League will take place Thursday, Oct. 13 in downtown Toronto. League members and guests are encouraged to attend.
Attendees are invited to join us at the 5:30 Mass at St. Michael’s Cathedral, which will be offered in memory of deceased members of the League. The business portion of the meeting will begin at 7 pm just across the road in the auditorium of St. Michael’s Choir School, 66 Bond Street. A light buffet will be available.
Guest speaker will be Daniel Santoro, lawyer to pro-life protester Linda Gibbons, who has repeatedly challenged the injunction creating a bubble zone around several Toronto abortion clinics through silent protest. Ms. Gibbons has spent roughly nine of the past 17 years in jail for violating the bubble zone, and her case is now the subject of an appeal in the Supreme Court of Canada. Mr. Santoro will share valuable insights into the civil rights implications of Linda’s case.
The meeting will include the presentation of annual activity and financial reports, and voting for the slate of directors. You are eligible to vote if your name and complete address are in our database and you have made a donation in the 12 months preceding the meeting.
