Protest Alert

    TORONTO, June 19 /CNW/ - On Saturday, June 20, starting at 2 p.m., more
than 300 people will be staging a protest in front of the Toronto Humane
Society at 11 River Street.
    The protest, organized by former THS staff, volunteers and concerned
citizens, is calling for the resignation of the entire THS Board and the
appointment of interim management to correct the turmoil inside the THS.
    "This protest is being organized out of love and compassion," says
organizer Marcie Laking. "We want the MOST humane and ethical treatment of
every single animal inside the THS at all times, we are standing up for their
rights and lives and are demanding positive changes inside FOR them."
    The THS has been in the media spotlight since the Globe and Mail ran a
three-part series on the situation. That series lead to an ongoing OSPCA
investigation of the THS (which suspended the THS's affiliate status). The
newspaper articles and OSPCA investigation have in turn caused hundreds of
people to step forward and demand positive change.
    Please consider covering this protest.
