Duly Quoted: Kathleen Wynne

For the first time ever, Ontario's premier will march in the Toronto Pride parade.

“Unfortunately we still need a Pride celebration because homophobia is alive and well, not just here in some places in Ontario, but in many parts of the world where you can still be imprisoned or beaten for being gay, lesbian, or trans.”

—Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne on this week’s Pride celebrations. Wynne confirmed over the weekend that she will be marching in Sunday’s Pride parade—the first Ontario premier to do so. Wynne, who didn’t realize she’d be setting a precedent until a reporter pointed it out to her, is the province’s first openly gay premier.
