Premier Doug Ford is taking heat from critics for deciding to skip Toronto's Pride parade for the second time since being elected head of the province.

"Premier Ford has always said he will attend Pride Toronto's parade when our front-line police officers are allowed to participate in uniform," press secretary Ivana Yelich said Monday, referring to an initial 2017 decision by parade organizers to bar uniformed officers.

"He wishes all the organizers of Pride Toronto all the best for a successful month and festival weekend."
