Below is a press release I had received (from INFACT Canada, I think) about
the posters being used in a breastfeeding promotion campaign, but I don't
remember any longer when it took place.  (All the posters are at  as Cee pointed out):

TORONTO (Reuters) - Pictures of "convict" babies and babies suckling at
their mothers' breasts are being posted in buses and subways in Toronto as
part of a month-long advertising campaign to end discrimination against
mothers who breast-feed in public.

Subway cars will display posters of three "convict" babies photographed in
the style of police mugshots with the slogan: "Breast-feeding in public is
not a crime."

 Another poster shows a baby suckling a breast with the caption, "Don't
think of it as a woman's right to breast-feed.  Think of it as a baby's
right to eat." will be on platforms of some of the city's busiest subway
stations. The C$80,000 ($54,000) campaign, which kicked off to mark World
Breast-Feeding Week, was  sponsored by the Ontario Human Rights Commission,
the city of Toronto and the Infant Feeding Action Coalition  (INFACT).
