November Toronto Claire Hoy, an anti-gay columnist with the Toronto Sun, narrowly escaped being hit by a coconut cream pie when he was leaving CBC studios on Jarvis Street after the taping of a panel program on gay rights (broadcast on November 24). The pie, thrown by a member of the gay community, was deflected and smeared the back of another panellist, Rev. Joseph MacDonald, a Baptist minister and the national chairman of the recently formed CAHRL. Both men had spoken against legislative protection for homosexuals during the program. The other panellists were John Damien and Gerald Hannon of the Body Politic.
