The winner gets a flight to Prague and four dates to be used with up to four women.
The contest closes March 8, International Women’s Day.
Dixon said the station should issue an apology, pull the contest and donate the money that would have been spent to send the men to the Czech Republic to a local women's charity.
One of the aims of the protest, he said, was to target advertisers with hopes of ads being pulled.
Leslie, who represents a Halifax riding, calls the contest outrageous and apologized in Parliament for the station giving away women as prizes.
In a statement in the House of Commons Wednesday, Leslie said the contest is promoting an environment in which women are offered up as trophies. As a Canadian, I want to apologize to all Czech women and to the 50,000 women of Czech descent living in Canada.
"International Women's Day is a day we really want to highlight the inequalities and oppression of women, and it's very offensive with such a sexist contest, said Laurie Ehler, who attended Thursday's protest. It has a lot of history and lots of international issues around human trafficking." Derrick Dixon organized an online petition that gathered more than 700 signatures.
"If the bride gets here, Lucy and I would be happy to show her around and we will make sure that she knows something else Canadian women have won in the last 100 years: the right to a divorce." Douglas said he knows Leslie and was disappointed in her statement.
Douglas said the morning show hosts, three men, have also made it clear there’s no promise of marital bliss.
"Q104 is, in no way or manner, awarding the winner of this contest with sexual services or favours or participating in any type of prostitution or forced non-consensual arrangement," the rules say.
As a result, the NSLC has ended our advertising campaign four days earlier than planned," Rick Perkins, vice-president of business development and communications, said in an email.
The station belongs to Newcap Radio, which also runs Hot 89.9 in Ottawa.
