This is important because the answer to defending Pride from Christian hate-mongerers isn't getting the police involved. The police being involved will always put Queers at risk. And it isn't about getting the city to enforce a bylaw infraction so that they could be removed for protesting without a permit. That sort of nonsense will only be used against anarchists and organizers when we try to rally and march and demonstrate dissent on the streets that we're entitled to take. Without a permit. The answer is engaging in meaningful community defense.
