The city of Yellowknife rescinded its proclamation of Heterosexual Day at a special meeting Monday.
Councillor Alan Woytuik introduced the proclamation last week in response to a request for the city to proclaim Gay Pride Day.
"I am not anti-gay and I'm not advocating denial of anyone's rights or promoting discrimination. In fact, my position is just the opposite. I fully support the fundamental principle of democracy that everyone should be treated equal.
"I'm a little shocked over all the attention it received. I saw it as a simple request to treat everyone the same and it was misinterpreted and kind of blown way out of proportion from what the original intent was so I feel a little shocked about that."
