Chief Jolliffe: Resign or Apologize to Rabbi Kaplan and the Jewish Community
The following petition is to petition Chief Eric Jolliffe of the York Regional Police Force to either resign or offer a public apology to Rabbi Mendel Kaplan and the Jewish Community of York Region. Rabbi Kaplan's synagogue was scheduled to host a speaker, Pamela Geller, who is a political activist opposing Muslim Extremism. The York Regional Police convinced Rabbi Kaplan to cancel the event using Rabbi Kaplan's position as a volunteer Chaplain with the York Regional Police Force as a means to influence this decision. The York Regional Police were wrong to use its position of power to force the cancellation of this event. In doing so, they have subdued the Right of Free Speech and have shown the Jewish Community that they have no understanding of how to properly "Serve and Protect" the Jewish Community of York Region. As such, the Jewish Community has lost confidence in the York Regional Police Service. Indeed "DEEDS SPEAK".
