On Sunday, June 24, thousands of people lined the streets for the city’s annual Pride Parade. There were rainbows all around, but many in attendance traded in their colours for black, in remembrance of the victims of of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.
An hour into the parade, there was a moment of silence to all those who have been victims of violence. Several politicians attended the event, including Mayor John Tory, City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, provincial NDP leader Andrea Horwath, and departing-Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne. The parade went down the Church and Wellesley neighbourhood, down Yonge from Bloor, and then concluding at Dundas.
