Unruly people spewing hateful conspiracy theories about the Pride flag forced Leduc Mayor Bob Young to abruptly cancel a recent council meeting. This, as RCMP are investigating vandalism of a Pride-themed crosswalk in the Alberta city. Incidents like these are making news throughout June (Pride month) across North America...not to mention the boycott campaign targeting Bud Light for partnering with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
3:35 | So, what gives? What's driving this campaign against Pride? How are lawmakers and citizens alike to respond? Mayor Bob Young joins Ryan for a firsthand account of what went down Monday night, and what he's doing about it.
18:15 | Did you see Jackie Goldberg's rant? The president of a Los Angeles School Board, who happens to be a lesbian, had a pointed message for protesters calling for a book ban outside an optional Pride assembly at Saticoy Elementary School.

Rinks Around the League founder and former NHL production manager Jeff Nash joins Ryan in studio to talk it out.
