Ezra Levant, the television host of Sun News Network’s The Source, is hosting a ‘Calgary for Israel’ rally at city hall this evening.
Levant launched the idea in the days after a pro-Palestinian rally on July 18 that attracted some members of a Jewish family who were subsequently attacked.
Police are still investigating that incident.
Chief Rick Hanson has apologized for the lack of police presence when the fighting broke out, something he attributed to a communications breakdown.
Levant doesn’t accept that explanation and has been pushing for police to lay charges.
We’ll be live blogging from outside city hall this evening.
