Is Vancouver the Gay-Bashing Capital of Canada?

It's been a quiet BC Day so far chez nous, which is just fine by me.

In fact, it's been a fairly quiet long weekend all around. Yet, as the city's downtown core slowly recovers from its various bacchanals--the final night of fireworks on Saturday, the Pride Parade yesterday, and the Powell Street Festival both days--and as Metro Police no doubt let out a collective sigh of relief that no major violence occurred, it's worth pausing to consider the following article recently published in the Globe and Mail.

No matter how you crunch the statistics, define tolerance, or credit the suburban thesis, it's still a sobering assessment.
