Highly-regarded anti-nuke organization becomes first Harper charity victim | Toronto Media Co-op

By Nick Fillmore

Physicians for Global Survival (PGS), a highly regarded Canadian NGO that has been campaigning to abolish nuclear weapons for 32 years, is losing its charitable tax status.

“We promote nuclear disarmament,” said staff member Andrea Levy, “but we’ve been told we’re too political. We do too much advocacy.”

However, the content of the PGS website (www.pgs.ca) and its newsletter Turning Point do not present the picture of an organization that is moderately political, let alone radical.
