Premier Doug Ford marched alongside police in the York Region Pride parade Saturday — surprising organizers of the event.

"York Pride was not aware Mr. Ford was attending or marching in our parade today," they said in a statement to the Star. "We found out that the premier was attending from news agencies calling York Pride for statements."

York Pride said Ford arrived moments before the parade started. The premier tweeted that he was "thrilled" to attend the parade with health minister and Newmarket-Aurora MPP Christine Elliott, attorney general and York-Simcoe MPP Caroline Mulroney, and King-Vaughan MPP Stephen Lecce.
