Obscene advertisements in Toronto subways must be removed
The graphic same-sex images displayed in Toronto's subway system are shocking and repulsive. Children should not be exposed to such images and they should be removed immediately.
The advertisements, sponsored by the Gay Men's Sexual Health Alliance encourage homosexual couples to have "the sex they want," even if they or their partners already have HIV. The shocking images depict homosexual threesomes and bondage harnesses, in full view of children who take the Toronto subway's busiest line every day.
The Canadian Code of Advertising Standards requires that advertising directed at children "must not present information or illustrations that might result in their physical, emotional or moral harm."
Furthermore, the Code indicates that advertisements shall not "display obvious indifference to . . . conduct or attitudes that offend the standards of public decency prevailing among a significant segment of the population." There can be no doubt that these advertisements display obvious indifference to conduct that is offensive to public decency!
Sign the petition to the Toronto Transit Commission and Advertising Standards Canada, demanding that these sexually explicit ads be removed!
