"Pride is political; pride is anti-police; pride is a protest".

"Police represent histories of violence and brutality towards black people and indigenous people and different people of colour both in Canada and the USA and across the globe", Blain said. "We attended last year and this year and in the year in between, we're still talking about the same very issues - anti-Black racism, police violence, the need to address and to see Black Queer and Trans communities".

"This event is open to everyone except institutions that criminalize, brutalize and kill Black people and other marginalized groups. They are for all of us and have made Pride 2017 more inclusive for everybody." said Syrus Marcus Ware of Black Lives Matter - Toronto.
