Controversial Middle East ad pitched to TTC

B’nai Brith Canada argues the Palestine Awareness Coalition advertisement should be rejected in Vancouver because its transit system, Translink, has a policy that ads should not denigrate a group.

“This is derogatory against Israel and people who support Israel,” said B’nai Brith spokesman Sam Eskenasi, adding the group has received emails expressing the hope that a similar ad doesn’t show up on the TTC.
