Apparently near Dundas/Greenwood, Sunday August 22. I learned about it on Twitter.

Might I suggest during the next scheduled visit from the evangelicals we throw a street party celebrating diversity? They can protest all they one will hear them over the sound of celebration! :D

Thankful to all those people who extended grace to the gay couple. Those of us who are angered by what happened are also invited by this incident to extend grace to the group responsible for making unkind remarks towards this couple. It will be a noble moment for Leslieville when we can work together at healing each other.

We appreciate the action of our neighbours .THX. Although we were not present at the time we feel the need to clear up a possible misunderstanding. We have lived on the street for 13 years. Though we don't align with the outdoor sermon it has never been directly targeted towards us. They have conducted these sermons on our street numerous years prior to us moving here. We just want to ensure the focus of this is public church sermons (not targeting a gay couple) .

My wife's lived a block over from that church all her life and they've been drumming up business this way for ages. Usually it's just gospel they utter, but nothing hateful per se. They usually only do it once a year, so it's about as annoying as Mike and Goldie on Channel 17. Otherwise, big deal. Like I said, we've never actually heard 'hate' speech.

These people epitomize ignorance.

I'm so happy the neighbourhood banded together and ran them off. Bravo to you all.

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
