The issue of raising the Pride flag has raised debate all over Ontario including the 705. In Powassan, flying the flag was met with opposition from some community members. In the past, the municipality has passed resolutions recognizing June as Pride month but it’s the first time it’s been asked to fly the Pride flag. Mayor Peter McIsaac says Powassan is an inclusive community and that the Pride flag should be raised along with the Indigenous flag since June is also National Indigenous History Month in Canada. Council unanimously passed the Pride flag resolution.
