Ostensibly searching for evidence of “hate speech” at Toronto’s Dyke March, anti-gay city councillor Giorgio Mammoliti videotaped participants along the entire route on Saturday afternoon. See the video of the creepfest at the end of this post.
Mammoliti has been a leading force in attempts to cut city funding for Pride Toronto, after allowing Queers Against Israeli Apartheid to march in last year’s parade. (The City Manager subsequently ruled in Pride Toronto’s favour, because the phrase “Israeli apartheid” does not violate the city’s anti-discrimination policies.)
Mammoliti has a long history of being creepy when it comes to LGBT issues. But this instance of stalking definitely takes the cake.
On Twitter, #PeepingMammoliti became a trending topic in Toronto on Saturday afternoon.
