Milton streets brighten up with unveiling of downtown rainbow crosswalks
Milton is a lot more colourful and inclusive today.
Milton Mayor Gord Krantz and MP Adam van Koeverden headlined a group of Town representatives who officially unveiled two new rainbow crosswalks, Friday, in Milton.
The colourful new crosswalks along with colourful new library benches highlight the Town’s celebration of Pride Month.
"Milton stands with and supports our 2SLGBTQ+ community," Krantz said. "These rainbow crosswalks, in the heart of downtown Milton, are a symbol of the Town's commitment to being a diverse and inclusive community where everyone is safe and welcome."
Milton council had recently announced that two rainbow crosswalks would be added on Main Street, with one at the Charles Street intersection and a second at the Brown Street intersection.
The outdoor rainbow benches at Milton Public Library locations will be available for residents to enjoy year-round.
