Mr. Galloway In Toronto

Published: Wednesday, 09/14/2005 12:00 am EDT

The book he's promoting is called Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington, but the author is in Toronto this week, sharing with Canadian sympathizers some of his fiery anti-war opinions. British MP George Galloway, expelled from the Labour Party in 2003 by Prime Minister Tony Blair for suggestions that the Western world's war on terror must end, is being hosted on Sept. 16 by a students' association at the University of Toronto and local peace groups. The MP, who was re-elected this year as a candidate for his own newly-formed party, called Respect, will tell of the imaginative ways he's managed to oppose the occupation of Iraq. This includes his memorable testimony before the U.S. Senate in May when he said President George W. Bush's decision to march into Iraq was based on "a pack of lies." Mr. Galloway's speaking event takes place at U of T's Convocation Hall, 31 King's College Circle, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m.) Tickets are between $7-$20, and are available by calling (416) 978-8849.
