A statement was issued last night from Pride Toronto asking Toronto police officers to refrain from marching in this year’s Pride Parade. Their reasoning for issuing this statement was that they believe that police are not supportive of their community. They also believe that the police’s involvement in the alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur case was not handled properly.

But there has been some backlash in response to the statement. Some people believe that asking police not to march is not in line with the Pride motto that is inclusion.

Police have since responded to Pride’s statement and withdrawn their application.
