Gay Pride Parade Organizers Declare Bankruptcy!“now clearly unsustainable.”
Hyper Sexualized Ottawa Gay Pride Parade “now clearly unsustainable.”
Ottawa’s Capital Pride homosexual organization has just declared bankruptcy. Before anyone starts cheering or jeering this could well be a maneuver to establish a platform for fund raising mainly at the public purse who do in fact make up the majority of society, well and truly. How vested should the public be in footing the bills for what is a in truth a minority. The broader is if the above holds out to be true then it could set up decades of taxpayers money going to put foot the bills for the show and future minority groups seeking bailouts. Canada has lesson to learn here.
On Facebook The Capital Pride Board of Directors made public that the situation is “beyond its ability to alter or repair and is now forced to declare bankruptcy.” Seems to me they well might be admitting being incompetent and as such they are in a this financial situation they now admit they cannot repair. Who’s to say public funds if any to bail them out in the future will not go towards another year of “mismanaged debauchery”?
Private finical supporters where made aware of the financial chaos in public releases starting in early September of this year.
We are taking this time to thoroughly examine the materials prior to presenting them to our stakeholders, the Ottawa–Gatineau LGBT community and our allies
On September 9, 2014 on the Capital pride.ca website: “The Board has been working closely with its experts to gather and assess all relevant documentation.”
Seems that several people and or providers where looking to cash in on the event namely Sebastien Provost of http://www.houseofsas.ca/
Capitalpride.ca publicly reports that House of SAS “significantly exceeded the agreed-upon budget.” and “Capital Pride would like to assure its sponsors, community partners and members that no donations or sponsorship funds have been implicated in any way.”
What does that mean? “…implicated in any way.” What funds where they going bankrupt with?
To top it all off there is this little ditty: “The Capital Pride Board of Directors would like to, once again, thank everyone who made the 2014 Capital Pride Festival a success. We look forward to resolving this matter and beginning preparations for next year.”
Clearly “success” was measured in way other than finical or fiscal responsibility. Despite this, the Pride community vows to have a 2015 event:
“It’s going to happen, even if I need to get a giant rainbow flag and march down the street my damn well self,” said Ian Capstick, who chairs the Bank Street BIA’s committee dealing with all things Pride. Source
Not all think that this is a good or even desirable thing.
Charles McVety a Canadian Evangelical Christian leader is quoted as saying “It’s a great day for Ottawa [if] sex will not be paraded on the main street and children will not be visually violated,” he told LifeSiteNews.
“There were loads of people in nothing but underwear, dozens in leather bondage gear, and I saw at least a dozen topless women. I took everything I was handed, and walked away with a dozen condoms,” he wrote at the time, adding: “The drive to glorify illicit sex is what animates the entire event.”
“Our government should not be funding anything that contains illegal activity. Public nudity is illegal activity and is damaging especially to children. It is my hope and prayer that the government doesn’t get fooled and does not supply hard earned tax dollars for a sex parade,”
Gwendolyn Landolt, national vice-president of REAL Women of Canada, told LifeSiteNews that many people attend the homosexual parade primarily for the “circus-like spectacle that the participants in the parades provide,” not because they actually support homosexual practices. She hopes, along with McVety, that Ottawa City Council will not bow to “politically correct” pressures to fund the event, arguing that most taxpayers would like to see their money go elsewhere.
