Pride Toronto Co-Chair Resigns Amid Fallout From Police Ban

A co-chair of Pride Toronto recently resigned after a very challenging meeting of the group’s voting members Tuesday night, as the organization continues to struggle with fallout from its ban on the Toronto Police participation in the annual Pride festival parade.

The decision to invite police back — which was announced at an October press conference attended by the Executive Director of Toronto Pride, Nuamah, Toronto Mayor John Tory and Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders — this was never put to a vote. The Toronto Police eventually rescinded its application after fierce backlash from some in the LGBT community.

Erin Edghill stepped down at the end of Pride Toronto’s annual general meeting, after a motion of non-confidence in four board members passed by a margin of 42 to 28.  Edghill released his statement resignation to Twitter.  See below…
