Okay, this is getting ridiculous. Now the Globe and Mail is running an article that by going to his cottage for Canada Day, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is now enabling bigotry and legitimizing hate? Come on, seriously!? Ford did not make any discriminatory comments or say anything that could even be remotely construed as hate speech. He simply does not want to attend a parade where there will be naked men, and has his own family traditions on this annual holiday weekend. The people making the big fuss about this aren't the bigots, but rather the media. If the bigots are indeed emerging from their hiding places, the blame rests in the microphones and keyboards of the media members sensationalizing this story.
If Rob Ford were trying to outlaw the pride parade or even enforce laws against public nudity, then sure you could draw the conclusion that he were "attacking" the festival, but that's not the case. He's going to his f**king cottage people, not herding anyone up to be sent to concentration camps. The clowns at the Globe and Mail need to relax.
