Organizers of the Montréal Pride Festival have cancelled today’s parade.
They cited a lack of security staff for the parade route, adding that the decision was made in collaboration with Montreal police.
Events taking place at the Esplanade du Parc olympique from 2 p.m., including the closing show with Pabllo Vittar, will go on as as planned.
Tens of thousands of people were expected to attend today’s parade.
More to come.
