Trudeau to march in Toronto Pride Parade

TORONTO — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be returning to one of Canada’s largest Pride celebrations this weekend.

Pride Toronto, organizers of the city’s festival celebrating the LGBTQ community, says Trudeau will be marching in Sunday’s parade again this year.

He made history last year when he became the first sitting Prime Minister to take part in a Pride parade.

Trudeau marched in Vancouver’s Pride festival later that summer.

This year, he will be joined by other dignitaries including Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Assembly of First Nations Chief Perry Bellegarde, making his first appearance at the Toronto Pride event.
