TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/28/14 -- The educational charity Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE), whose programs focused on the well-being of boys and men are routinely opposed by some feminists, has had their permit to walk in Sunday's Pride parade revoked.
CAFE will nevertheless host a public Pride Party tonight in the Village and will participate visibly in World Pride Sunday.
"As a trans-woman I'm troubled that Pride would become my oppressor," said Genna Ross, Chair of CAFE's LGBT Committee, and advocate for transgendered people and the disabled.
CAFE walked in 2013 without incident and was approved for 2014 months ago. Pride's Dispute Resolution process prevents cancellation of permits after June 21st and grants groups opportunity to respond to complaints. Those procedures were abandoned.
Among provocative groups walking in Pride, including Queers Against Israeli Apartheid and OECTA, only CAFE was barred.
"Pride has abandoned its own values of equality, inclusion and diversity," said Ross.
CAFE is pursuing an amicable resolution with Toronto Pride.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
