Coun. Keenan Aylwin has the backing of at least two well-known Canadian human rights advocacy groups.

The Urban Alliance on Race Relations and the Canadian Anti-Hate Network have issued statements in support of Aylwin, Barrie's Ward 2 councillor, as city council prepares to reprimand him for comments he made in a March 21 Facebook post.

"Barrie city council and MPs John Brassard and Alex Nuttall are ... attacking Aylwin for his criticism and principled anti-racist stand," the Anti-Hate Network said in a social-media statement May 31. "For shame. Barrie needs to get its act together."
