The North Bay and District Labour Council and LGBTQ community discuss possible PRIDE march in the city
Approximately 30 members and friends of the LGBTQ community met with members of the North Bay and District Labour Council Monday night, to brainstorm ideas for a major PRIDE event for the city.
The Ontario Federation of Labour recently released a copy of the 2017 Ontario Pride Events calendar. The list of participating communities included Sudbury and Timmins, but North Bay is noticeably absent. Local labour president, Henri Giroux is offering his membership’s manpower, organizational skills and financial support, to get a large scale event, like a PRIDE march, ready for July if there is enough interest.
