This year’s Capital Pride hit a high note with its longest parade to date. The colourful parade wrapped up the 10-day festival, which started on a more sombre note, with an event marking the 20th anniversary of Alain Brosseau’s death.

Later in the week, queers and allies took part in the Landmark VIP Reception cruise along the Rideau Canal.

And on Sat, Aug 29, boisterous crowds marched the streets of Ottawa for the 2009 Dyke March (check out our video).
