Activists demand Kelowna rescind 'Protect Human Life Week'
The City of Kelowna is once again mired in a debate over abortion. Two weeks ago, the city scrapped its courtesy flag program. That, after the Kelowna Right to Life society vowed to fly a controversial flag over city hall.
And while the flag program was scrapped, the city's procolmation remains. Mayor Walter Gray has proclaimed the last week of September "Protect Human Life Week." It's the fifth year in a row that the city's has made the proclamation. But pro-choice activists want the proclamation rescinded.
Dianne Varga is a community activist in Kelowna. She's one of 28 people who have signed an open letter to the Mayor and she spoke with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
