Before the Pride parade, I was walking up Thurlow Street toward Nelson when I spotted a bunch of photographers clicking images.
What could all this commotion be about?
It turned out to be Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.
He was meandering around unescorted, mingling with the crowd and having his photo taken with anyone who asked.
Somehow, I doubt we will ever see Prime Minister Stephen Harper doing anything like that, particularly at a Pride festival.
