I also think the police participation in Toronto's Pride Parade is important, for more or less the same reason. As I understand it, police antagonism of Toronto's gay community was a foundational cause of  Toronto's gay rights marches that spurred gay rights activism across Canada.  Police participation now kind of says "never again" and "we're on your side now, bro."

Does this mean 'we will never target gays again ?' or 'we will never target groups again ?'.  If it's the former, then that's pretty narrow.  It means that LGBTQ have now graduated to the protected class, but other groups will remain outside.  If it's the latter, then will this community say something about concerns for the Black community also ?
