EXCLUSIVE: CAA terminates driver after he uses company vehicle in anti-Israel protest

One participant holding a giant Palestinian flag ran around with an Israeli flag tied to his ankle, dragging it along the ground and stomping on it.

Anti-Israel protestors once again took to Toronto's streets on Saturday to demand a ceasefire and condemn Israel for defending itself against the terrorist organization Hamas in the wake of the Oct. 7 attack.

The event was organized by Toronto 4 Palestine. The poster, seen on Instagram, declared that "PAUSE FIRE IS NOT CEASEFIRE."

The event kicked off at Nathan Phillips Square with speeches and chanting. At one point the crowd claimed that Israel's war against Hamas is "racist" and "fascist."

One chant that came up often was the genocidal, "From the river to the sea Palestine will be free." Someone on the event's truck acknowledged opposition to the chant, and then encouraged the crowd to chant it even louder.

One participant holding a giant Palestinian flag ran around with an Israeli flag tied to his ankle, dragging it along the ground and stomping on it. In the clip, another participant can be seen stomping on it as well.

Several users on X were quick to notice a Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) truck in the march, and expressed concern over whether the company supports terrorism. Some threatened to cancel their memberships.

Both the main CAA account and that of CAA South Central ON responded to the comments, stating that "CAA does not condone the use of our logo or branded vehicles in political protests. The driver was acting of their own volition and without our prior knowledge. They will no longer be working on CAA calls."

In a statement to The Post Millennial about the incident, a representative from CAA South Central ON further clarified: "The driver was employed by a third party tow truck company and not at CAA. He has been terminated from his job."

As the march progressed through the downtown core, a large police presence prevented the group from proceeding down certain roads. Mounted police officers were on hand.

The march passed by Cafe Landwer, and not for the first time anti-Israel protestors demanded a boycott of what they call a "Zionist cafe." Police were on hand, and protestors did not graffiti the business like they did Aroma Cafe last month.

Several hours after it began, the march eventually wrapped back at Nathan Phillips Square, which was full of families enjoying the Cavalcade of Lights and ice skating in the square. As protestors dispersed, law enforcement presence was heavy as they directed traffic away from the area.
