Pickering, Ontario city councillor Lisa Robinson has been given a 60-day suspension without pay for advancing the interests of her constituents. Robinson introduced three motions on the council floor; to ban the flying of all non-governmental and special interest flags including the pride flag on municipal properties, imposing an age limit on drag shows taking place on city property and to ensure that women had a safe changing room at a local recreation facility. Robinson was suspended from council as a result.

In the Pickering integrity commissioner’s findings, Robinson is accused of “promoting attitudes which are homophobic and transphobic”.

This is an example of a radical city council embracing Marxist tactics to enforce ideological purity across all councillors and to make an example out of the one councillor willing to actually speak up and be a voice for the silent majority.
