It’s been a busy couple days. Ever since CFI Canada launched the new Extraordinary Claims campaign, there’s been an influx of comments and emails about the new slogan. If you haven’t already seen the campaign, I’d suggest you check out the website at http://www.extraordinary-claims.com and take a look. It’s pretty darn fantastic.
However in the last few days the story really caught fire as the press got word that CFI was once again going to be putting controversial ads on buses across the country.
The National Post covered the story and you can see that here. The article earned some condemnation from Kelly McParland on the National Post’s Full Comment section.
CTV Also ran a good piece about the Extraordinary Claims ads and you read that here.
The Province newspaper has also printed an article about the new ads, entitled: Atheists hope to spark debate by bringing controversial ad campaign to B.C.
Not to be outdone, so has the Vancouver Sun: Christ meets Bigfoot: More irreverent atheist ads set to hit Canadian cities
The Metro in Vancouver took the question to transit riders in its article: Atheist ad no big deal: Vancouverites
Radio was not to be neglected either. News 1130 picked up the story as well.
In addition, CFI Canada Board Member Pat O’Brien was a guest on CKNW AM 980 on the show The World Today
you can hear Pat’s segment on the CKNW audio vault
, he appears around 5:15 on December 2nd.
Did I miss anything? Have you heard the extraordinary claims or atheist bus ads in the news lately? Let me know!
