Pride Toronto members vote no to allowing police to march in annual parade

A day after signing a list of demands from Black Lives Matter protesters, Pride Toronto says it never agreed to exclude police from its events.

The activist group presented the list at a sit-in halting the city’s massive Pride parade for about 30 minutes Sunday, demanding that Toronto police floats and booths be barred from Pride marches, parades and community events. Their demands also included a commitment to increase representation among Pride Toronto staff and to better support black events during Pride.

On Monday, Pride Toronto said in no uncertain terms it did not agree to bar police from the festival.

Count on PM Butts Boy & Mayor Tory to give Pride more of your stolen money.
