Trudeau to become first Prime Minister ever to attend Toronto Pride Parade

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed today he'll be marching in this year's Pride Parade in Toronto. It's no surprise he'll be attending but it is significant - Trudeau will become the first Prime Minister to ever participate in the festivities.

In 2015, Trudeau made his presence known at Pride when, as leader of the Liberal Party prior to the federal election, he dressed in a pink shirt and white pants and hammed it up in front of large crowds and cameras alongside Premier Kathleen Wynne.

This year both Liberal leaders will be back marching in the parade. Toronto Mayor John Tory and Finance Minister Bill Morneau are also expected to participate.
