NION/LCBO Update

According to Facebook source, the Summerhill LCBO has 80 cases of wine with 12 bottles per case. That is a total of 960 bottles.

The word is that 342 people said they will be buying wine (by the time this message was sent to me by counter-protest organizers). As of now 488 have confirmed on the Facebook group that they will be attending the anti-protest.

I’m very pleased to to see that NION won’t  intimidate the Jewish community in support of Israel and buying out the entire selection of wine is a likely reality.
