Time for Pride (and others) to pay their own way

Toronto's annual Pride Parade held in downtown Toronto

TORONTO - I’ll see you at Pride this weekend in the Gay Village, a quick stroll from my place.

The Sunday parade is a gas, awash in high camp and low stress. Church St. will smell of sweat, pot, beer — and money. Sponsors include Viagra, Trojan condoms, Loblaws, TD Bank, Loblaws, Pizza Pizza ...

You’re on the list, too, whether you like it or not.

All levels of government sink your hard-earned cash into Pride Week, including the province with $350,000 and the city with $140,000. (more...)
