Toronto po­lice in­vited to NYC Pride

Cape Breton Post - - News -

Hamil­ton, Ont. po­lice of­fi­cers march along the pa­rade route dur­ing the an­nual Pride Pa­rade in Toronto, Sun­day, July 3, 2016. Toronto po­lice have re­ceived an in­vi­ta­tion to par­tic­i­pate in uni­form at the New York City Pride March next month. The in­vi­ta­tion, in a let­ter sent last Fri­day, comes amid a con­tro­versy over the ex­clu­sion of uni­formed of­fi­cers from Toronto’s Pride Pa­rade. The Gay Of­fi­cers Ac­tion League in New York re­quested per­mis­sion for Toronto of­fi­cers to join uni­formed mem­bers of the NYPD March­ing band and colour guard in the June 25 Pride March in New York City — the same day as Toronto’s own Pride Pa­rade.
