Pride Flag Raising

Monday, June 24
Toronto City Hall

It’s the annual raising of the rainbow flag – marking the official start to Toronto’s Pride Week festivities! Hundreds shall be in attendance, including a good number of our fine city councilors. There is even (unconfirmed!) buzz that Mayor Ford himself might make an appearance. TWO Toronto mayors at the same event? Pray that an occurrence this momentous doesn’t cause our very planet to spin off its axis!

In addition to soaking in the festivities, I shall be on hand to host my very own live talk show, titled Chill with Will. Expect it to be “epic,” as the youngsters a good century my junior would say. We’re talking a slick 19th-century talk show set, plus comedy, music, special CUPE 79 guests, and a healthy dose of rabble-rousing mayhem! Who says Craig Ferguson has the market cornered on high-energy Scotsman-hosted talk shows? Certainly not I!

Oh, and stick around to chat with yours truly: Toronto’s first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. I plan to mingle, pose for photographs, and engage in snappy banter, Rest assured, I shall be exactly as charming and whimsical as you’d imagine – if not more so!
