Montreal Pride parade cancelled hours before event due to lack of staff

Global News published this video item, entitled “Montreal Pride parade cancelled hours before event due to lack of staff” – below is their description.

Pride Montreal said the city’s iconic parade that closes the festival’s celebration of LGBTQ+ communities was cancelled on Sunday, citing security concerns stemming from a lack of volunteers for the event.

In a statement, organizers said the decision was made with the support of city police because there were not enough volunteers to ensure safety along the parade route.

But Mayor Valerie Plante says the city was not warned about the staffing shortage and could possibly have come up with a solution if it had been informed.

Dan Spector has more on the decision and the disappointment among parade participants and spectators.
