Censorship in Ottawa!!!
In November, I decided to start a new Conservative Film Society here in Ottawa, and as my first film, I picked a film called Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West.
I went to the Rainbow Cinema at the St. Laurent shopping centre and I rented a theatre for January 29th. It was all set. I paid a deposit...and then in January I paid the last half of the rental charge. I gave the maanager all the pertinent details about what I was exactly showing.
Well, this week, the manager received an e-mail from a retired professor of history in Ottawa who said that the movie maligned muslims...and within two hours, they cancelled the film!
Talk about censorship. I would have respected them had they declined to accept the booking..but to cancel within 3 weeks of the one show....
I now have another venue - the Ottawa Public Library....same time (January 29th at 7 PM)...and just a $4.25 admission charge.
For those of you interested in attending, here is a link to the movie site and you can watch a 27 minute trailer.
Comments? Please pass the word to anybody you know in Ottawa that they should attend.
