Prime min­is­ter to march in Hal­i­fax Pride Pa­rade on Satur­day

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

HAL­I­FAX — Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau will take part in Satur­day’s Pride Pa­rade in Hal­i­fax.

Hal­i­fax Pride tweeted on Mon­day evening that a “spe­cial guest” would join the pa­rade, to which Trudeau replied, “See you there!” Hal­i­fax Lib­eral MP Andy Fill­more also sent out a tweet say­ing Trudeau will march in this year’s pa­rade. Trudeau be­came the first sit­ting prime min­is­ter to march in a Pride pa­rade when he did so in Toronto in 2016, then at­tended the same event last month. Hal­i­fax’s po­lice ser­vice said in Fe­bru­ary that it will not par­tic­i­pate in this year’s Pride pa­rade amid a “na­tional de­bate” about po­lice in­volve­ment in such events.
