A Statement from the CFL

CFL Football Sports

TORONTO – The Canadian Football League (CFL) released the following statement:

We in the CFL hold high the Diversity Is Strength banner. Our league makes no claim on perfection but it does strive to be inclusive, to accept and indeed celebrate our differences, and to respect and honour human rights.

There is no place in our league for commentary that disparages people on the basis of their religion, race, gender or sexual orientation.

As Pride Month continues, we stand with the LGBTQ+ community. We all need to say no to hate and yes to love.

Randy Ambrosie
Commissioner
