Re: Group wants ‘gay’ tag for Bank, March 19 Metro.
It is deplorable that in 2008 Canadians’ average attitude about gays is still so primitive. There are so many types of dangerous people our society could talk against and act against, but gays, who never harm anyone, are still the target.
Should we consider this stretch of Bank Street a gay village? There isn’t a lot to see on the gay side, though, and it is fairly small, so a reasonable alternative would be just a ring (the usual colours) around the already made Bank Street Promenade sign. The other reason for this: Inexpensive.
