Toronto Mayor Wants Rainbow Flag Removed from City Hall

Cities across Canada are doing it as a form of protest during the Olympics over the treatment of Russian gays

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wants a rainbow flag flying at City Hall protesting Russia's law restricting gay-rights activities to be removed.

Some city halls across Canada raised the pro-gay rights rainbow flag on Friday as the opening ceremonies for the Winter Olympics got underway in Sochi, Russia.

Ford says it should be about the Olympics and being patriotic and that it's "not about someone's sexual preference."
