Pride parade is about unity
I watched the news regarding the Pride parade. A few protesters no longer feel safe having the Edmonton police be part of the festivities. I have gone to numerous Pride parades over the last 20 years and I was honoured to have the police, Edmonton mayor, paramedics and firefighters walk along the route with us.
We were one. We are one. The Pride Parade is all about unity. Unfortunately, due to a couple of overly sensitive souls the Edmonton police department is no longer welcomed, shunned, ostracized. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? What will be next, banning plaid shirts and baseball caps?
There goes the female patrons in the Pride parade.
If people are afraid of police, children or balloons stay away from the Pride parade next year.
