Dan Leger on Truro Pride: Discrimination illegal, even for pastors, politicians

Halifax Chronicle-Herald columnist Dan Leger weighed in today with this excellent opinion piece, "Discrimination illegal, even for pastors, politicians" on the ongoing controversy surrounding the Town of Truro's refusal to fly a Pride flag.

I hadn't heard that Truro mayor Bill Mills had further stoked the hateful fires by comparing gays and lesbians to pedophiles. I agree with Mr. Leger that "that’s the kind of odious comparison that veers pretty close to hate speech."
