Mayor Rob Ford says city hall should take down the Pride flag which was just raised to support gays rights in Russia as the Olympics Game in Sochi begin.

“No, I do not agree with putting up the rainbow flag,” Ford said Friday.

“This is the Olympics. This is about being patriotic to your country. This is not about your sexual preference.”

The mayor said it should be a Canadian flag.

Ford’s statement comes on the heels of allegations of homophobia after he said Wednesday he would never attend a Pride parade because he did not want to.

“I’m not going to go to the Pride parade. I’ve never been to a Pride parade. I can’t change who I am,” he said at a debate at the Scarborough U of T campus.

Previously, Ford had always blamed a family vacation for conflicting with the Pride parade in Toronto.
