Enzo Loschiavo, Manager, National Post SalesOpen Letter to The National Post
I’ve just filed a complaint against The National Post with The National Ads Council for printing this ad for Charles McVety's "Institute for Canadian Values" promoting Religious Intolerance and HATE. It is a clear example of the Religious Right lobbying to sabotage our tax-funded education system
Besides being in very poor taste, it also violates section #14* of the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards http://t.co/ypFD6yp3
When can your readers expect an extraction and apology?
Thanks in advance, Pete
