Doug Ford marches with uniformed police in York Region Pride Parade

David MenziesMission Specialist

Last weekend, Ontario Premier Doug Ford marched in the York Region Pride Parade. It’s not newsworthy when an elected official marches in such parade these days. But it’s practically front-page news when a Ford does so, such as Premier Doug Ford or the late, great Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

The Fords have long taken a pass on marching in such parades. It was their choice not to do so, and, ironically, for a community that has for decades clamoured for more tolerance and more acceptance, those who comprise the squeaky wheel of Club LGBT tend to be the most intolerant and unaccepting people in the room. They have routinely condemned the Fords’ choice not to march as being “homophobic” because hey, what else could it be, right?

There is still pressure by those in the Toronto Pride Parade demanding that Ford march in their event at month’s end. But Ford says he won’t do so, not until the organizing committee lifts its outrageous ban of uniformed police officers from attending (you see, Black Lives Matter demands that the Toronto Pride Committee be “police-o-phobic”, and what Black Lives Matter wants, Black Lives Matter gets.)

But Ford’s stance on this file is principled and correct. If Pride Toronto wants to ban specific municipal workers (i.e., cops, some of whom are gay themselves, by the way), then fine. But this should not be condoned by those in office. In fact, why doesn’t the city take back its annual grant to Pride, a stipend that is typically more than $250,000 – oh, and bill Pride Toronto for the additional hundreds of thousands of dollars in city services the organization receives to stage its parade each year. But alas, that would require Mayor John Tory to have some testicular fortitude. Translation: I’m more hopeful the Leafs will win that aforementioned Cup…

I guess in my previous comment I shouldn’t have used the term “goat herders” as Michael Cooper is getting grilled right now for apparently uttering those words years ago!! Ah no ,I will keep calling Trudeau’s invaders this plus many other handles!!

I am very disappointed with Doug caving in to the degenerates…profoundly disappointed.
It would help to know why he caved…

It will all change when the goat herders start chucking the gay infidels off the roof tops-then we can say told you so but you were to blinded by the religion of peace!! They might acid attack you as well since acid attacks in Canada’s shithole(Toronto) are on the rise!!

You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t with these guys. Don’t play. They will never stop trying to humiliate you but if you refuse to play at least then your self respect will remain intact.
Doug has humiliated himself in my opinion. Its hard to have any respect for someone who would cave this way. I wonder what Rob would think?

I don’t know what Police force would want to be a part of pride parade except to keep the peace and maybe an obscenity law or two…. would be nice for a change. I don’t want my police wearing rainbow colours or hijab. I wonder if there are any police on any provincial force or RCMP who wear both at once? Diversity is our strength right?

Doug, they are jerking your chain, and will never stop now that they know that they can.

I wonder how long it will be before the Peaceniks-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named make an uninvited appearance at one of these pride parade events to express their diversity of their opinions in their not so subtle usual manner?

Good call on the hypocritical woman of said peaceniks not covering similar events in the Middle East.

Durward, next it will be Pedo Pride Parades. Why stop here?

Celebrating perverts and the mentally ill is pretty damn absurd.

Christianity sets very high moral standards but offers absolute forgiveness

Secularist society has no moral standards and says do what you like, But offers no forgiveness to anybody who transgresses the unwritten code.

Ford has shown he is a coward! He caved!

Pandering for votes, and he’d get booed in Toronto…

These “Pride” folks have reprobate minds. That’s why they can’t think logically. They should have been glad to get Doug Ford on their side but that would mean giving him praise. No, they’re haters through and through.
