Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison not participating in Pride Parade
Atchison has never attended the Pride Parade as mayor
This year's Pride Parade in Saskatoon will once again march on without the city's mayor.
On Wednesday, Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison's office said he will not be attending this year's Pride Parade, adding he'll be at his father's 90th birthday happening at the same time as the parade.
A spokesperson for the mayor said they're working through the schedule to attend some Pride events in Saskatoon running from June 3 to 12.
