Toronto Pride Parade Turned Out to be Something the City Wasn’t Expecting!

Something the City Wasn’t Expecting!

On Sunday, tons of people gathered to commemorate the annual pride parade even after all the tensions growing in between the Toronto’s police and the LGBTQ community.

Up to 120 group of people walked along the route of the rainy downtown. There was no clue of any uniformed officer marching along with them.

At the start of this year, LGBTQ charged Toronto’s police, of not taking immediate action against the disappearance of those eight men from the city’s gay village. It was just till January that a 66year old horticulturist Bruce McArthur was arrested on the charge of murder of first degree of the eight men.

A 29-year-old nursing student Mike Moris who attended the parade dressed in a rainbow speedo said that the assertions that were made against the 66 years old Bruce McArthur showed no effort between the community and the police and it also certified his aspirations to get into the parade.

He added that the community called LGBTQ should get together as a single unit in “difficult situations.”

Conflicts between the police and the parade started brewing up in 2016 when people of Black Lives Matter suddenly terminated the parade to present a couple of demands that included that the uniformed officers, their troops, and orders should be eliminated from the parade.

This year it is a consecutively second year where the uniformed forces have been eliminated from the parade. However, to ensure security the police remain of charge as tons of spectaculars visit the parade.

Many political leaders are supporting it too. One of the leaders Ontario LDP Leader Andrea Horwath represented the sorrow by recognizing the “poignant” and “painful” moment encountered by the community after the loss of eight men victimized by McArthur. She wore a black arm back around her wrist in support of the grief.

Horwath even said, "There are still tensions with the police and I believe that dialogue has to continue to happen and that it will resolve with respect from both sides, but those things are part of the context of moving us forward as a province and as a city, and I'm happy to be here and part of that positive revolution."

Her marching alongside with the federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh reflected how well she understood this cause and how passionate she was about it. Jagmeet Singh recognized the Pride Parade as, “revolutionary movement to take space for a community that has always been marginalized."

He added that the parade will always be under consideration as it is a matter of discussion that is difficult to be gone through such as current tribulations between the deaths and the police.

He added putting an end to what was happening and said, "Love is love, it truly is, but there is so much more that needs to be done ... There's been concerns around a trust that's broken down.”

"The only way we can have good policing is when there's a trust between the police and the public and that is something we need to have."

He also mentioned that Howarth's Conservative counterpart, premier-designate Doug Ford, should have attended the parade.

 

Jagmeet Singh added, "It is not surprising that he's not here,"
