Over, The Rainbow

It’s not enough to have Toronto amass into a literal garbage dump or to bar kids from City-run pools and daycares—now they’ve stolen the rainbow from the sky.
In possibly the saddest-sounding phrasing of any strike-based sign this week, the traditional hoist of the rainbow flag for Pride Week has been nixed. Though the annual flag raising event is usually just barely a blip on the radar—er, gaydar—it’s as if they’ve announced that cupcakes will be confiscated or that unicorn rides have ended. See, CUPE, you make us not want to be around you when you get like this.
