Duly Quoted: Mel Lastman

“Maybe if [Ford] doesn’t come around this year, next year, I think he’ll work up his courage and go. Once you go, you’ll be fine.”
Former mayor Mel Lastman with some thoughts on his successor’s less-than-enthusiastic reception to participating in this year’s Pride parade. Yesterday Rob Ford announced he’d be missing the parade to spend time with his family at their cottage; he is also not scheduled to appear at any other events during Pride’s ten day run of festivities.
