September 16 Toronto In a brief submitted before the Code Review Committee of the OHRC by Patrick Kerwin, the Canadian Labour Congress recommended the amendment of the Ontario Human Rights Code to include protection based on sexual orientation. On the same day, Gerald Hannon of the Body Politic and Mary Axten of the Committee to Defend John Damien presented briefs to the OHRC as well. Hannon concentrated on discrimination against gay advertising in the mainstream press; Axten pressed for the full reinstatement and vindication of John Damien.
