Sex Selection Ads in Punjabi Papers in Canada

Ads for ultrasound clinics are running in two Punjabi-language newspapers, the Ajit Weekly, based in Mississauga, Ont., and with a B.C. edition, and the Hamdard Weekly, published weekly from Toronto, New York, Vancouver and California, and the Indian city of Chandigarh.

The papers are distributed across Canada.

One ad provides B.C. phone numbers, including a line for Punjabi speakers, for anyone wanting to make appointments at Koala Labs, an ultrasound clinic in Blaine, Wash.

It reads, "You are told the sex immediately."

Now, that should be illegal.
