A new petition is circulating online, asking the CN Tower to light up with rainbow colours during the Sochi Olympics opening ceremonies.

The organizers of the petition say they would like to use the occasion to speak out against what they say are Russia's 'brutal anti-gay laws.'

The CN Tower already glows 'rainbow' for Pride, so organizers say lighting the tower Friday shouldn't be a problem.

You can find the online petition, here.
