I know it’s just a dinky little online poll so it doesn’t mean anything really. But still… as of 6:32pm on Saturday, Feb. 8, the poll the Leader Post has up on their website has 1,302 out of 1,538 people voting AGAINST flying a pride flag at city hall during the Olympics.
Only 236 people have voted in favour.
That means L-P readers are voting more than five to one against this expression of solidarity with LGBT people.
It’s fucking shameful.
But it does make me think there aren’t nearly enough Prairie Dog readers hitting that poll.
As always if you’ve thoughts on this issue, I’d love to hear ’em in the comments below.
UPDATE: Hey Regina, look at this… even your Sask Party Premier supports flying the Pride Flag:
In Saskatchewan we protect human rights and stand against discrimination. We join other provinces in flying the Pride flag.
