Guthrie applauded the government for taking that step, but said legislation is necessary. A provincial Ministry of Education spokesperson said they believe a policy provides the needed support, and no legislation is planned.

Saskatoon is a welcoming place with beautiful wide-open prairie skies and an urban river valley. This city is a place where you can be yourself. So much so, that Saskatoon is playing host to the Interpride this fall. Outdoor activities in Saskatoon are great for the adventurous spirit.
There was some controversy though over the banners. There were claims by people associated with the club that the banners now represented the province's first gay district. City Councillor Darren Hill says that's incorrect. Hill said one nightclub should not establish a gay district and that they were established many years ago for a safe haven or an area for people to feel comfortable in.
