The special interest snowflakes are competing with each other over face time. I guess it is hard to find someone who isn't tired of their agendas. I know I am tired of the whining by both groups.

I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out why there would be any kind of Black Lives Matter movement in Toronto, Canada ? First I've heard of anything "BLM" up here.
I could see maybe a Native Lives Matter movement happening in Canada, but a Black Lives Matter movement ??
I'm baffled on that one...
The Black Lives Matter Toronto group has come under fire over a tweet by one of its co-founders.
On Feb. 9, Yusra Khogali tweeted, "Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today. Plz plz plz," according to Newstalk 1010.
Alexandra Williams, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, told CBC's Natasha Fatah that they held the sit-in because they wanted to hold Pride Toronto accountable for what she called "anti-blackness."
The treatment of the LGBT community by Black Lives Matter is completely disgusting.
BLM has become a racially motivated agitator group. When is the MSM going to start talking about this instead of giving them a free pass? Nobody else could get away with this.
Pride Toronto executive director Mathieu Chantelois says no final decisions have been made after he signed an agreement mid-parade Sunday with Black Lives Matter Toronto protesters that includes several demands, including banning police floats in the future.
“Black Lives Matter is not going to tell us that there is no more floats anymore in the parade,” Chantelois said in an interview Monday on local news station CP24.
“Pride is bigger than Black Lives Matter,” he added. “That is the kind of decision that needs to be made by the community.”

Apparently a part of the "agreement" the Pride Toronto Director was forced to sign after BLM threatened to halt the parade, was that Police floats would be banned from every future Pride parade.
The level of lunacy coming from this group never ceases to amaze me.

So two thoughts...
1) Why does BLM think Canadian police are as bad as American?
2) Why is there a pride parade in Canada?
