Toronto police invited to NYC Pride
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.
