UCP caucus celebrates Calgary Pride parade
United Conservative Party Caucus Interim Leader Nathan Cooper today issued the following statement as Calgarians wrap up the annual Pride festival with their Calgary Pride Parade:
“I would like to congratulate Calgary Pride, the volunteers and all Calgarians on another successful Pride Week.
“There is simply no place in our society for homophobia, transphobia, or intolerance. Our caucus is committed to promoting support and inclusion for all Albertans.
“The UCP was founded on a set of core values and principles, the first of which is the equality of all before the law and the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms for everyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity. I am committed to upholding these values.
“My colleagues and I look forward to continuing to build on our relationships with the LGBTQ community in the years to come. Happy Pride, Calgary!”
