Urgent message from Toronto: need supporters for Oct 25, 2011

A message from Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker:

Dear Shark Friends:

Today, opposition to the shark fin ban brought in 300+ people to protest against the ban. The Council vote has been delayed to tomorrow (Tuesday October 25).

We ABSOLUTELY need your help to come out at 8:00AM tomorrow (Tuesday October 25) to City Hall to stand up for sharks! Despite the shark fin ban passing unanimously at the Licensing & Standards Committee, your support tomorrow morning is ESSENTIAL to the ban passing Council. It is also extremely important to email the Mayor and the Councillors if you haven’t already done so.

Thank you for your continued support and I hope to see everyone tomorrow morning. Dress warmly!
