home. We are going to stay within the ru- ral communities first. Once we get enough people on side, we will branch out.” He said it is the “first time ever, anywhere in Canada” that a municipality has voted to uphold the right of free expression for its residents. “We have a constitution, charter of rights and freedoms, that everyone ignores, takes for granted. We’ve never had a municipality, or a township … or city, stand up and actu- ally vote on a resolution to pass a bylaw to protect freedom of expression,” he said. “It really is, it’s going to resound. It’s just the beginning.” In a rambling address prior to the vote, Galganov touched on a conversation he had prior to the meeting with local MP Guy Lauzon, read a passage from a book de- scribing the heroic exploits of his father in the Second World War, before turn- ing his attention to members of council. “Now I understand not all our council members are supportive of this as well,” he said with a degree of incredulity. “If it’s not our mandate, whose is it?” he questioned. “We’re watching our country fall apart.” Galganov also took great pains to frame his proposal as a matter of freedom of ex- pression, not a French-versus-English issue. “We are talking about rights, not language,” he stressed at the beginning of his address. But as he wound up his speech, he said he “can’t fathom” how the township would refuse to pass a law to guarantee freedom expression. Please see “LANGUAGE”: Page 7

Freedom of expression is a charter right in Canada. At the urging of Howard Gal- ganov, the township of South Stormont has made it municipal law. Council members, in front of more than 200 people in the township council cham- bers in Long Sault, unanimously passed a motion allowing township residents to ex- press themselves in the language of their choice. “Today we’re making history,” said Mayor Bryan McGillis prior to last Wednesday eve- ning’s vote, promising the new law will al- low people to erect signs in any language without restriction. minated with a standing ovation from the overwhelming majority of supporters in the gallery. Galganov, speaking after the vote in South Stormont, said he will launch a free- dom of expression campaign directed at municipalities across Ontario. “There’s over 400 (municipalities) in On- tario. I intend to go after all of them – one at a time,” he told reporters. He would not reveal which municipality is next on his list, but said he would “short- ly” target a municipality close to his home base. “We’re going to stay relatively close to The motion was passed after a pas- sionate speech by the Williamstown language-rights ac- tivist Howard Gal- ganov, which cul-
