TORONTO, June 3, 2003 ( – The Ontario Tory Government has admitted to donating $100,000 to Toronto’s ‘Gay Pride Week’.  Ontario Tourism Minister Brian Coburn confirmed he made a $100,000 donation to the event glorifying homosexuality which runs from June 23-29.

The organizers of the event are confident that the federal Liberal government and the Toronto City Council will match the provincial donations. The funding follows complaints from the event organizers that due to the SARS scare the numbers of participants are expected to be diminished.
