Do you have any proof of this as it pertains to Pride and the LGBT community? Do you personally know that his support of Pride is not heartfelt?
Obviously I don't have proof. It would be impossible to prove this claim without a lie detector test or some sort of written/verbal statement. I think common sense and observation is sufficient in this case. When he is he ever genuine about anything he talks about? Do you think about John Tory and say to yourself: now that is an honest man? He's as crooked as politicians get. I don't believe for a second that he cares about Pride. He is a 60 something, conservative man. What possible connection could he have with the LGBT community? I think he knows how advantageous Pride is for him. It's an opportunity to shine a light on himself and make him look much better and more empathetic than our previous mayor; not to mention, it puts him in better standing with social liberals; strengthening his support among our electorate. I really think he is exploiting LGBT people, and that ought to make you angry.
Don't mistake his excellent oratory skills for passion and sincerity. It's easy to look past his empty words and gestures if you look close. His imagistics (if that's a word) are very good and psychologically appealing. He is always smiling and looks friendly. This, automatically, makes him attractive to many people and makes him appear to be a trustworthy person. Compare that with his sidekick, Denzil, who has absolutely no charisma or positive body language. The latter is much easier to perceive because he speaks and acts exactly how he feels. He doesn't care about being politically correct or fashionable.
