Gay festival organizer defends Conservative government

By Jennifer Ditchburn, The Canadian Press
Wed Jul 8

The director of one of Canada's premier gay and lesbian festivals sprang to the defence of the Conservative government Wednesday, saying she has received even more stable support since the Tories took power.

Suzanne Girard, director of Montreal's Divers-Cite artistic festival, blamed right-wing fringe elements for unfairly trying to embarrass the Conservatives and cause problems for events like hers.

Tory MP Brad Trost recently told a website promoting socially conservative values that "almost the entire Conservative caucus" and the Prime Minister's Office were caught off guard when Toronto's gay pride week received $400,000 in funding over two years under a new program for major tourism events.
