Canadian PM takes part in Vancouver Pride Parade

Vancouver, Aug 1 (IANS) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined thousands in the streets of Vancouver for the city’s annual Pride Parade.

One of the participant Casha at the 38th Pride Parade told Xinhua news agency that the celebration was “all about diversity and celebration of the uniqueness that everybody in the gay community enjoys, so that’s why it’s important.”

It’s impossible to count so many people, but organisers claim that nearly half a million come out each year to the parade.

This is the first time a sitting Canadian prime minister has joined the parade in Vancouver, even though Trudeau has marched several times at the event in the past.

According to organisers, the event is growing larger every year and has become Western Canada’s largest parade.

It’s also one of the largest street parties across all Canada and the US.
