Over the next few weeks, City of Moncton crews will be painting over 500km of lines and 859 crosswalks throughout the city…no rainbow crosswalks on Main Street though…The province sent out 13 letters in March telling municipalities rainbow crosswalks on provincial roads will not be approved until a national safety study is complete. Because Main street is also a designated provincial highway, Moncton will go back to white crosswalks until the issue is settled. In a statement from the LGBTQ+ group River of Pride, they said “After previous years’ great show of support, we are convinced municipalities’ support of sexual and gender diversity will not be diminished by this obstacle. In the meantime the city says they’ll work on other ways to recognize diversity in the community.
