NWFZ campaign growing

Terri Hilliom — August 1983

The grassroots campaign to make Ontario a nuclear weapon-free zone is building across the province with key organisers in 15 towns and cities.

The campaign was launched in April when Richard Johnston (NDP MPP, Scarborough West) introduced a resolution into the provincial legislature which would prohibit the deployment, testing, construction and transportation of nuclear weapons in Ontario. Now a non-partisan Resolution I Committee is busy distributing NWFZ window signs and petition forms to peace groups across the province.

The committee has received requests for over 20,000 signs and petition slips from more than 40 communities from all areas of the province. Local peace groups in these communities are organizing door-to-door canvasses, setting up booths in shopping centres and distributing the petition slips at local peace events.

The committee hopes to have window signs up in homes across Ontario and thousands of signed petition forms by the time the resolution is debated in October. For more information on how you can help, call 416 xxx-xxxx.
