PM Trudeau Participates in Halifax Pride Parade

Justin Trudeau became the first prime minister to participate in the Halifax Pride parade this weekend, but he hopes he won’t be the last. Thousands of people turned out to cheer on Trudeau, who was accompanied by his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, as the procession snaked its way through downtown Halifax. Trudeau told reporters on Friday that he longs for a day when the participation of prime ministers in Pride events won’t be so novel. The Halifax Pride Festival runs through July 30th.
