F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada wins award from Pride Parade Vancouver


So you think you have them all figured out. Angry men who wear leotards and terrorize women, children and politicians alike. If you are talking about Fathers 4 Justice Canada, that could not be further from the truth.

The group is celebrating one of their greatest achievements to date. The "Biggest Best Float" award from the Vancouver Pride Parade held last Sunday, August 2nd.

This year marks the fourth year the group has entered their float in the Pride Parade with their motto, "Proud to be Parents!"

"People have no idea how equality minded we actually are," says Kris Titus, National Coordinator for the group, "When we say we believe in truth, justice and equality, well, that's what we mean!"

This year's Vancouver Pride Parade was one of the largest, with attendance estimated at 600,000 citizens. Rob Robinson aka Burnaby Batman, and the group's National Action Coordinator explains, " We are there to educate, liberate and celebrate. This year we had 19 people participating with a full contingent of Fathers 4 Justice Superheros and a Kangaroo Judge."

This year's Vancouver Pride Parade marked another first for the group with a 'sneak peak' at their newest Superhero, to be released in the near future. Captain Condom will soon be seen in cities across Canada promoting the message that safe sex is safer than family court.

As part of a new public service campaign, the group will hand out thousands of free condoms to the public in hopes of raising awareness that with parental rights comes parental responsibilities and Canadians must protect themselves from family law.

F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada represents a very diverse cross section of Canadians from fathers and mothers to grandparents and parents in same sex relationships.

"We are honored, truly honored." says Titus, "We want to thank the Parade Committee and we look forward to many more years to come."
