“I take my invitations one day at a time as you know.”

—The mayor, to reporters, about whether he’ll accept an invitation from Pride Toronto to attend this year’s festivities. He missed 2011 Pride entirely, to much controversy—he had a regular family trip to the cottage scheduled for the parade, Ford said, but skipped all events on other days as well, including the City Hall rainbow flag-raising ceremony. Ford has also so far failed to reply to another invitation to Pride, from councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale), who wrote to the mayor two months ago.
