BY ANDREA HOUSTON – An ad that activists have called transphobic, which ran in the National Post and the Toronto Sun during the Ontario election campaign, appears to now be airing on Sun TV.
On Oct 24, Savannah Garmon tweeted a link to a YouTube video of the ad about an hour after Queer Ontario's Casey Oraa asked the Twitterverse to record a copy. The offending section starts at the 1:00 mark.
During the election, the Toronto Sun refused to apologize for running the ad, which outraged activists have called transphobic and misleading, in its Oct 2 edition but did say that it would not run it again.
It is not known when the ad ran on Sun TV. No one was available for comment at the Toronto Sun at 11pm.
This is a developing story.
