    This Guy Would Rather Lose His Job Than Drive A Pride Bus

    He says he won't compromise his Christian beliefs.

    In honour of this year's Pride celebrations, Calgary covered a bus in this pretty sweet rainbow wrap.

    Rolling thru #yyc streets up to Sept 6. We'll tweet the routes so you can ride the rainbow! #yycpride

    The bus' front display says "HAPPY PRIDE" and a banner on the side says "Ride with Pride" with information about Calgary's Pride week.

    Now meet Jesse Rau, a Calgary transit driver who would rather lose his job than compromise his values by driving a rainbow bus.

    The city's first official Pride week was proclaimed by the mayor in 1991 but he faced so much backlash that he took it back.
