Toronto shows its pride
"It's the Olympics. This is about being patriotic to your country, it's not [about] sexual preference."

Ford wanted the flag taken down, apparently blind to the numerous Canuck flags already flying in the square, but failed to get the Pride flag removed. That authority rests with the chief of protocol, not the mayor.
