On the other hand.

Nuamah said Pride was "incredibly well looked after" by the Toronto Police Service during the weekend's festivities, which is why incidents did not spill into Pride events.

In Hamilton, that would read

Despite absense of Police, Pride was incredibly well looked after by the Pink Bloc anarchists, which is why hate group incidents did not spill into Pride events.

It's true. The Pink Bloc & friends, under physical attack,  kept the violent haters behind the big black curtain, away from the festival area, and Pride Fest itself was not affected, "the best ever".

If I was the parent of the 15 year old with the broken nose, smashed in the face by a helmet-wielding hater creep from Kitchener, I'd be filing lawsuit against Hamilton Police, for sure. Did the Police Chief never consider that possibility when withholding necessary emergency services from Pride?!! The stupidity is phenomenal! Does he ... think nobody cares about Pride folk? **** **** **** bigot fucker.

UPDATE:
Helmet-smash-face guy has finally been arrested!
That's the first decent thing police have done.

Actually now in Canada it's 2SLGBTQQIA+.  "2S" is "two-spirited" for natives, and natives are at the top of the victim hierarchy in Canada so they get to be 1st in the acronym.

Two spirited is not just for Natives.  I'm two spirited.  On the one hand, I'm a Bradford City fan, but in the Premier League, I support Liverpool.

If Bradford City ever get back to the Premier League...?  I guess that's where the + comes in.

Gee, the DUMB rating wasn't good enough, and there wasn't a SCUM rating, so there it is.

Either way, it's a good way of showing a lack of wit.

Ah, the misdirection.

If I was another poster I'd accept your surrender, but as that's not my phrase, I'll just give you the last word and take another couple of weeks off.

B,Bye. And I advise not to adopt Dope's little phrase. It doesn't work.
