Video - 'Black lives matter' for Dummies.
The group 'Black lives matter' — a Canadian chapter of the a larger U.S. movement active in Toronto since late 2014 — caused a stir on Sunday when some of its members who were marching in the city’s Pride Parade staged a sit-in — bringing the event to a halt for about half an hour.
The parade resumed when Pride Toronto’s executive director Mathieu Chantelois signed a list of demands that included more funding and better representation for racialized communities during Pride events, and a ban on police floats in future parades.
