Green Party of Ontario to Participate in Toronto Pride Parade

Green Party of Ontario Leader, Mike Schreiner, is looking forward to marching in the Pride Parade with his fellow candidates and Green Party supporters, on this last weekend of Pride celebrations. 
“Each year I look forward to this opportunity to express our unwavering support for the LGBTQ community. Embracing our diversity will help us build more liveable communities for all members of society,” said Schreiner. 
This year’s Green Party entry will feature eco-friendly transportation and live music. Over 50 marchers are expected to join Schreiner and Federal Green Party Leader and Canada’s first Green MP Elizabeth May. 
Toronto Centre GPO Candidate Mark Daye will also be participating in the parade.
“As a married gay man, Pride is an important time to celebrate the great gains we've made over the past 30 years, but it is also a time for us to reflect on the very real challenges that still face the members of the LGBTQ community, both here and abroad,” added Daye. “It is extremely important for our elected officials to show the world that Toronto embraces our city motto 'Diversity Our Strength'.”
The parade is scheduled to start at 2pm at Bloor and Church and travel down Yonge Street passing by over 1 million expected attendees.
