Good afternoon Mayor Ford and/or staffer assigned to go through these messages.
My name is Josh, I’m calling as a concerned citizen of Toronto Ward 27. The mayor has objected to the Pride flag being flown at city hall for the duration of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Mayor Ford is, of course, entitled to his opinion, but the mayor has been consistently spreading incorrect information about the Pride flag, and it is his civic duty to stop. He is abusing his position as an elected official to misinform the tax payers he claims to represent.
I request that Mayor Ford make clear that the Canadian flag was not removed from city hall to make room for the Pride flag. The Pride flag flies proudly alongside 8 Canadian flags and the flags of the provinces; a central flag pole at City Hall hoists a 9th Canadian flag.
It is also in the interest of the city to know about the purpose of the courtesy pole, and if Mayor Ford would clear up that this flag pole is used to fly flags of many special interest groups in the city, it would clear up a lot of the confusion he has caused. In the time Rob Ford has been Mayor, it has flown the Movember flag, the Autism Ontario flag, and the flag of the People’s Republic of China.
If Mayor Ford’s objection to the Pride flag is about patriotism as he claims, I would like to know why he did not complain during the Summer Olympics in 2012 when the courtesy pole flew the flags of Bolivia, Ecuador, and Jamaica.
Please do not trade in the politics of divisiveness for political gain. The citizens of Toronto see right through you. We know what you are.
