Toronto Councillor did the right thing

Denzil Minnan-Wong, a Toronto city councillor, walked out of council when two members called for a moment of silence in tribute to Henry Morgentaler.

Wong stated:

“I have always been prolife. Walking out was a matter of principle and personal integrity,” he said. “Not to walk out would have been a recognition of his accomplishments.”

Councillor Fletcher called Wong's action rude, however Wong replied that Fletcher is a great supporter of free speech unless it is speech that she disagrees with.

Thank you Councillor Wong for doing the right thing, for standing for your beliefs, and for having the courage to take the rebukes that came for doing what was right.
