Controversial 9/11 ads spark call for review of OC Transpo ad policies

OTTAWA – The Chair of Ottawa’s Transit Commission is calling for a review of OC Transpo’s advertisement policies.

Diane Deans call comes after about 300 OC Transpo buses started running ads that question what happened during the World Trade Centre attacks on September 11, 2001.

The posters which read “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?” are funded by an organization called “ReThink9/11.”

The group has said it does not accept the official explanation of the attacks and is demanding an investigation.

It launched a global public awareness campaign at the beginning of September and has put up posters in a number high-profile spots, including a 54-foot-tall billboard in New York’s Times Square.

This week marked the 12th anniversary of the attacks.

I Believe The Billboards etc..were tasteful and we have a right to share our views regardless of what one man believes. Unless The Chair of Ottawa’s Transit Commission was involved in 9/11 why would they care? It is controversial, Yes, but 9/11 is controversial to the hilt and people deserve the TRUTH for once instead of Lie after lie and cover up after cover up. Get something more serious to spend your money on than a meeting to discuss what can and can’t be advertised, what a waste.

Wow! People demanding that important engineering reports comply with the laws of physics and the strength of material is so unsettling to the Chair of Ottawa’s Transit Commission that it is causing the OC Transpo’s advertisement policies to be reviewed. I hope that the Transit’s commission review will be done in public and allow for a showing of the five minute video on the Rethink911.org website.
