This year's Quds Day rallies held over the last weekend of Ramadan are expected to draw tens of thousands. Toronto has the honor of hosting massive rallies each year. This year's would be historic.
The annual Quds Day rallies have become a global phenomenon. In North America, Toronto holds by far the largest rally anywhere.
