Toronto cancels city-led and permitted events to June 30

Canada's largest city, Toronto, is canceling city-led and permitted events through June 30

Mayor John Tory said that includes Pride Toronto in late June.

Don Peat, a spokesman for the mayor, said it applies to events that get city permits like parades and festivals and does not include sports events like the Blue Jays, Raptors and Maple Leafs.

He added that it is inline with the province's ban of gatherings of more than five people.

The decision to cancel was made in consultation with Toronto's Medical Officer of Health.

Toronto has at least 628 confirmed cases of the new coronavirus, including eight deaths.
