Mr. Speaker, that is absolute nonsense.
This Toronto Pride is part of a very worrisome pattern of the government. Vancouver Pride was also shut out of government funding this year, and last year the minister of state for small business and tourism was punished for supporting Pride events.
Then, the Minister of Immigration removed all mention of Canada's gay and lesbian communities from Canada's new citizenship guide.
How can Canadians celebrate our tolerance when it seems the government has none? It has to heckle because it is so sensitive to the truth.
