33 pro totalitarian groups that need serious pushback...remove Planned Parenthood's tax exemption


Groups include Planned Parenthood and Democratic Socialists of Canada

A coalition of 33 groups have signed a letter in hopes that the city of Ottawa, Canada, and the hosting arena will cancel an upcoming Jordan Peterson event as a part of his international tour.

The Jan. 30, 2023, event is slated to take place at the Canadian Tire Centre, with activists calling on the arena and even asking Peterson's own talent representatives, Creative Arts Agency (CAA), to cancel the show and drop him as a client. 

The letter predominantly blames Peterson's support of the Canadian freedom convoy/trucker protest of 2022, which the letter says led to hundreds of phone calls to police and shutting down the bus network for disabled people.

"Despite this egregious situation, Peterson was an avid supporter of the so-called 'Freedom Convoy' that spurred the occupation," the letter reads, taking issue with Peterson also having members of the convoy on his podcast.

The letter goes on to say that Peterson's ideas are "misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and racist" and lead to an increased environment of "hate, especially toward the trans community."
