Unfortunately, we’ve been advised that the distribution of this content is within legal jurisdiction. Therefore, our office, nor any other Councillor’s, are able to enforce a stop to it. you receive disturbing materials you can contact the organization at 1-403-774-7467, email them at mailto:email@unmaskingchoice.ca or write a Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/canadiancbr.
