In the department of ridiculous, headline-grabbing ultimatums, city councillor and mayoral candidate Giorgio Mammoliti has given Queers Against Israeli Apartheid 24 hours to withdraw from the Pride Toronto parade or else he'll introduce a motion over at city hall to yank Pride's municipal funding. The ultimatum, launched in the Toronto Sun via columnist Sue-Ann Levy, is supported by fellow councillor and mayoral candidate Rob Ford and opposed by Joe Pantalone.
In the piece, George Smitherman also weighs in. He's not calling on the city to do anything… but apparently he thinks Pride Toronto should move to ban QuAIA all on their own. Yes, even after the big censorship battle. My, my. I know what I'll be doing at work tomorrow.
