Atheist bus campaign rolls into Ottawa (Media Release)

As you probably know we’ve had a rollercoaster ride in the nation’s capital, being refused access to buses by the Ottawa transit, then having that challenged to the Ottawa transit committee which ended in a split vote meaning the original decision was sustained.  But this was then further challenged by Ottawa city councillor Alex Cullen to the Ottawa city council where it was overturned.  To make a long story short, our ads went up on Ottawa buses last week, accompanied by the following media release:

Atheist bus campaign rolls into Ottawa

Toronto, ON. (April 13, 2009)―There’s probably no god.  Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.   The atheist ads are now up on buses in Ottawa.

“The campaign has overcome a few hurdles,” said Justin Trottier, President of the Freethought Association.  “A long bus drivers’ strike followed by refusal by OC Transpo and city of Ottawa Transit committee.” In March, those decisions were overturned by a vote of Ottawa City Council.

These ads are an invitation to begin dialogue, discussion, and demonstrate the principles of freedom of expression and religion that apply equally to non-believers and people of all faiths.

The Humanist Association of Ottawa (http://ottawa.humanists.net/) has been promoting secular humanism in the nation’s capital for over 40 years.

  1. Thank you to the Atheists we are getting our message out.

    “Don’t Worry, Enjoy your Life” – Yh-sh-wh Matt 6:25

    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life”

    Aleph or Alef, א, is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and the number 1 in Hebrew. Its esoteric meaning in Judaic Kabbalah, as denoted in the theological treaty Sefer-ha-Bahir, relates to the origin of the universe, the “primordial one that contains all numbers”.

    There probably is no “God” ?(as the Atheist’s know) This is correct.

    There is the Aleph in all.

    Amen to “that” – Yh-Wh (I am “that” I am)

  2. Harvard,

    I think you are walking around with your eyes closed. I think you need to open them.

  3. I used to actually like Allen Cullen. There is a God, The God Who created everything, and so the atheists had better be worried, for a punishment coming to them in the next life for ignoring and arrogantly assuming that they make the world go ’round.

  4. Erica,

    You mean to say “creates everything” YH-WH didn’t stop and then crawl back up into the clouds.

  5. This Gabriel character needs professional help.
    Will someone please take a stand and ban this weird person? He just clogs the pages with nonsense.
