If the razor-thin vote by the Pride Committee to bar police from marching in uniform in the 2019 parade is any indication, the gay community is split right down the middle on this issue.

A recent article in Xtra put it this way: "Toronto police have been under intense scrutiny over their relationship with the LGBT community, but Danielle Bottineau welcomes the criticism." Constable Bottineau is the TPS liaison officer to Toronto's LGBTQI2S community, an intriguing and challenging position. She will update us on police efforts to bridge the gap with critics in the gay community. Whether you're one of those critics or believe "Our Cops are Tops," you'll want to join us for what promises to be a lively evening of discussion and debate. We look forward to seeing you all March 4 !
