NWFZ drive in full swing

Nancy Watt — October 1983

The Ontario Nuclear Weapon Free Zone Campaign, launched by MPP Richard Johnston last April, is gathering momentum. Resolution I would prohibit the deployment, testing, construction and transportation of nuclear weapons in Ontario.

Throughout the summer local peace, labour and church groups collected signatures of support. Posters and petitions were distributed at fairs, rallies and booths in shopping malls.

In mid-September the Oct. 22nd Campaign canvassers started going door-to-door in several ridings throughout Toronto, promoting the Oct. 22nd March as well as collecting signatures for the NWFZ campaign. The canvassing will continue until Oct. 22.

The Resolution I Committee is working hard to focus public attention on the issue throughout October, before the resolution is debated. They need volunteers to wear sandwich boards promoting Resolution I in shopping centres, on university campuses etc. Volunteers are also needed to distribute window signs and gather signatures. I f you can help, please call VaI Taylor or Richard Johnston at xxx-xxxx .

Because Ontario is such a large jurisdiction it is important that the province take a leadership role on this issue.
