Homosexual Parade Numbers always Over exaggerated 2015 numbers
No, there were not 650,000 people at Vancouver’s 2015 Pride parade. Not even close.
The Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) has quoted that mind-boggling figure for years as the size of the crowd at the yearly parade. In turn, the number has been parroted by the Vancouver Sun, the Globe and Mail, the CBC, and even Daily Xtra. The myth even spread to federal politics, where Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said he promised to join “the half-a-million British Columbians who will be celebrating Pride this afternoon.”
Daily Xtra also consulted with crowd-counting expert Paul Yip, who developed crowd-counting models to estimate crowds in Hong Kong’s anti-government protests. Both Daily Xtra’s and Yip’s models agree that approximately 80,000 people attended this year’s Pride parade in Vancouver, about an eighth of the society’s estimate.
1% of Canadians are gay
“Among Canadians aged 18 to 59, 1.0% reported that they consider themselves to be homosexual and 0.7% considered themselves bisexual. About 1.3% of men considered themselves homosexual, about twice the proportion of 0.7% among women. However, 0.9% of women reported being bisexual, slightly higher than the proportion of 0.6% among men. ” (statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/040615/dq040615b-eng.htm)
