Thank fuck. Toronto cops are pretty fucking useless, not to mention their terrible history with LGBT and other marginalized groups. If officers want to be in the parade, they should be there as people, without badges and police rights.
I just don't get the reasoning for omitting the police presence but then I don't understand the reasoning for having the parade downtown it is much too big and without police they are asking for trouble
For such a large event, there MUST be and there WILL be a police presence for security. However, unlike previous years, there will not be a dedicated parade float for police officers. Police will provide security for the event but will not otherwise take part in the event (unless off duty/out of uniform).
