On top of this, our city is also hosting the World Pride this year. Sunday's Pride Parade is expected the be largest one Canada has ever seen. Given its prominence with hundreds of thousands of spectators and media attention, the Pride Parade is a unique opportunity for NoJetsTO to raise awareness on the jets threatening our waterfront. You are Invited Please join NoJetsTO and march with us in the Pride Parade. We will have a waterfront-themed float plus dozens of marchers. When: meet us at 2:15 pm on Sunday, June 29 Where: corner of Bloor St and Ted Roger's Way (northern end of Jarvis St) RSVP and share: click for the Facebook event Pride in Our Waterfront Countless Toronto residents visit and enjoy our waterfront every year. With its recreational offers like events, concerts and beaches, the waterfront is also a magnet for Toronto's LGBT community. Especially Hanlan's Point has evolved into a beach popular with gay visitors. But all this is at risk now from an expanded Island Airport. While the Pride Parade is an occasion to celebrate, it has also always been about political awareness and mobilizing the LGBTQI community and allies. The waterfront jet plans are threatening a unique recreational and tourist destination - for all Torontonians. Thank you for supporting a jet-free waterfront by joining us this Sunday.
