TRURO, N.S. - Town council in Truro, N.S., is holding a public hearing today on a proposed bylaw that has caused concern for gay rights activists.
Mayor Bill Mills wants the pedestrian entrance of the city's major green space - Victoria Park - moved to a less secluded area.
He says it's currently a favourite pickup spot for gays from all over the Maritime provinces.
Mills comments raised the ire of gay rights activists who say the mayor has unfairly targeted homosexuals and has heightened the risk of violence against them.
They point out the park is also used by heterosexuals.
Truro made national headlines in 2007 when council decided not to fly the gay pride flag.
