HAPPY PRIDE!!!, 2022


It was a pleasure for our team of Producer John Ironside and Associate Producer Tiffany Scott to once again join in on the celebration of love that is Barrie Pride. Downtown was kicking it on Saturday, June 1, 2022, as representatives of all groups associated with the LGBTQ2S+ community came together to celebrate love in its many forms.

Two protesters chose to use the event to spew religious rhetoric at the mostly young crowd, but they were quickly shot down by those enjoying the event who peacefully and without conflict told those who do not know exactly where they can go.

A good time was had by all, and it was great to once again see and party with so many loving friends after being separated for so long.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-for-profit truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.

Five Points Media has recently transitioned to become an active part of a new provincially registered not-for-profit corporation called the Ontario Community Awareness Network. To the best of our knowledge, ours will be the only community channel of its kind in the province if not the entire country.

We are looking for new programming ideas, with our focus being mostly on fringe and minority groups whose members are mostly ignored by mainstream media. These include, but are not limited to, the Indigenous population, People of Colour, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, and people of various cultures and religions.

We will continue to donate all video and media services to registered charities and benevolent not-for-profit groups that promote unity and support all members of the community. Our eventual goal will be to expand our programming to cover all of Ontario through a network of regional bureau facilities. This service will help all people in Ontario to learn about each other and work in unity.
