The province will be flying a rainbow flag to show its support for gay athletes in Russia.

The premier's office says all three house leaders have agreed to do so, underlining Kathleen Wynne "believes that one of Ontario’s greatest strengths is our multicultural society."

In an statement, staff say "Premier Wynne does not support intolerance of any group regardless of their faith or identity and she rejects the Russian government’s discriminatory laws."

PC MPP Doug Holyday says he's not going to oppose the gesture.

NDP House leader Gilles Bisson says Ontario is tolerant and flying the rainbow flag is a natural thing to do.
