The Huntsville OPP are continuing to investigate after a video circulating on social media this week depicting the removal and burning of a pride flag from a Huntsville School.
Huntsville Mayor Karin Terziano says there is absolutely “no place” in Huntsville for acts of violence and remains “in solidarity” with the LGBTQ2+ community.
“We are deeply upset to hear about this alleged act of violence toward the LGBTQ2+ community and we are devastated to see such activities occur within our community,” says Mayor Terziano. “These types of actions are very disturbing and they will not be accepted in any way.”
Huntsville Council will continue to stand firm against this type of behaviour to ensure our community continues to be inclusive, safe and welcoming for all.
Well done Karen on behalf of Council. Hopefully the parents of these junior felons will make it an unpleasant experience at home !
I’m going to guarantee that this idiotic event had nothing to do with hate, but rather with kids doing something stupid because they saw other kids doing the same stupid thing. Sure, our unelected mayor can do her best Justin Trudeau impersonation, but we all know this is just a stupid prank. And before the alphabet group gets angry for my truth telling, just remember that there’s probably an LGBT member in that group of teens who is just trying to fit in.
The horror…..the horror.
