Montreal Pride organizers cancel parade, citing lack of staff

Pride Montreal said the city’s iconic parade that closes the festival’s celebration of LGBTQ+ communities was cancelled on Sunday, citing security concerns stemming from a lack of volunteers for the event. But as Global News' Dan Spector reports, Mayor Plante said the city was not warned about the staffing shortage and said if it had been given a heads-up, maybe it could have come up with something.
