Support Rallies to "Men's Centre" Lecture After University Mandates Students Pay High Security Fee

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 24, 2013) - The Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE) received overwhelming financial support after their affiliate group, the University of Toronto Men's Issues Awareness Society, was mandated by the University of Toronto administration to pay $964 for campus police or have their Friday event cancelled. At previous events rioters committed illegal acts including pulling fire alarms and blocking exit doors.

"The Miles Groth 'Men's Centre' lecture will proceed, thanks to support from the men and women who donated," said Malcolm Johnston, CAFE Spokesperson. "Rewarding law-breaking rioters by cancelling events will only lead to increased censorship and make U of T a more dangerous place."

"CAFE remains committed to campus-based men's issues outreach," said Johnston. "But while our message is making a difference, it's clear long term success requires a home where programs are not under threat. This situation makes the case perfectly for Men's Centres."

CAFE encourages concerned citizens to continue making financial contributions to the Campaign to Establish the Canadian Centre for Men and Families.
