    This is such bullshit. I only had my first experience with Pride last year, and it was so much fun! Everyone there is pretty chilled out and friendly.

    What will become of it this year, if it can't receive any funding period?
    I saw a film today, oh boy.

    I was listening to city councillor Kyle Rae this morning on the radio, he said that the committee somewhat anticipated this move last year when there was a kerfuffle over some fundy minister then having her photo taken with some drag queens. Anyhow, apparently they've budgeted for the shortfall.

    Can't believe that a hick show like the Stampede gets funding and Pride which brings in bajillions doesn't. Well, I can, I'm not surprised, but I'm pissed nevertheless.

    We've had the right to marry for almost 10 years anf they're going to try and take it away.

    I fucking hate conservatives. Every last one of them. Everywhere.
    Well, when there are cutbacks everywhere, how high on the priority list is finding money for a bloody parade?
    Yeah, let's cut back on essential services elsewhere, and have one day of fun.

    Given that the parade brings in a couple hundred million for a pittance of an original investment?

    Do the math.

    Caribana is still funded, and the stupid ass Stampede just got another chunk of money and neither of them brings in the cash that Pride does.

    Pride GENERATES money.
