The Campaign for Life Coalition and “We Need A Law” civil society groups are planning pro-life rallies throughout Canada on Thursday, March 9, to call for abortion laws in the country. Demonstrations are scheduled to take place in major cities including Ottawa, Toronto, Victoria, and Edmonton. The main rally, the March for Life, will be held in Ottawa, starting at 12:30 (local time). Thousands of people are expected to gather on Parliament Hill before marching through downtown Ottawa at 13:30 and finally returning to the Hill at 15:00. An associated march will be held in Toronto from 10:00-12:00 at Queen’s Park. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around all demonstration sites.
Individuals in Canada, particularly Ottawa and Toronto, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, allow additional time to reach their destination, and anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence.
