Harper government cancels funding for Toronto Gay Pride Festival

Decision to nix Pride funding a ‘slap in the face’ - thestar.com
Simple. Harper hates Toronto. Tony Clement hates Toronto and he is in charge of the funding this year (and, the Conservative party is pretty much anti-gay, anti-equality, anti-rights and they just don't got no sense.) Clement will bend over backwards to screw Toronto. So, there he goes.
Hopefully, there will be an election soon and we can get rid of these guys and steer the country back to normal mode from asshole mode.

If you read about the Religious Ultra right that is running the Government, then you will understand. The Toronto Star has a good write--up..Harper gets his money from many of them..It would make one sick.They are actually like in the US. I think that politics and Religion should not go together, period

I did leave a comment on Montreal Simon's blog that it would be nice to see a Pride event in Huntsville. Perhaps the Toronto LGBT community can organize an impromptu/flash road trip this summer.

Agreed. This is also more of Harper's religious Right showing through.
