CFI-Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. In Ottawa, CFI has walked in the Capital Pride parade since 2009.
Our motto, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated, as highlighted by the recent battle to get publicly funded Catholic schools to allow GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) clubs.
This year, we have set ourselves the goal of getting 100 marchers to show CFI Ottawa’s support for the LGBT community. We invite CFI members to join us with your friends, family etc, to take Canada’s capital for equality!
