TORONTO (AP) — Bill Cosby’s three shows in Canada are still on the calendar for January, but a call has arisen for boycotting his performance in London, Ontario.
The executive director of the city’s center for abused women says Cosby’s appearance would be “inconsistent with the values of London.”
Megan Walker issued the call following renewed accusations that the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted more than a dozen women.
While the 77-year-old Cosby has lost nine of three dozen concert dates through May, all three shows in Canada are proceeding. He is scheduled to appear in Hamilton and Kitchener, Ontario, as well as at London’s Budweiser Gardens on Jan. 8.
Walker hopes Cosby will cancel the London performance but said if the show goes on, a protest will be staged outside the venue.
