About 50 picketers showed up for a lively picket against Premier Peterson at Toronto’s Sheraton Centre on February 17.  The picketers were in “excellent form” according to organizer Dan Mc Cash and sang hymns while handing out a Toronto-and-Area Right-to-Life pamphlet called “The Journey of the Unborn Child” as they waited for Premier Peterson.

The picket lasted two hours, until it was discovered the Premier was sick and had cancelled his engagement.

Undaunted, the picketers bought a “get-well” card which everybody signed and it was delivered by hand to his Queen’s Park office the next day.
