Thorold to become fourth in Niagara Region to add rainbow crosswalk?

After already being installed in Niagara Falls, St Catharines and Port Colborne, is Thorold about to become the fourth municipality in Niagara Region to get a rainbow crosswalk?
A local realtor, Anthony Feor, hopes so. Feor appeared before Thorold Town Council on July 20, telling councillors the kind of impact and feeling of inclusion the addition of a rainbow crosswalk would give the LGBTQ+ community in town.
It seems he was heard. Council sent back the request to staff, asking for details on cost and potential location.
One person 100 per cent behind Feor is Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey, who took to social media to voice his support.
“Proud to see local resident Anthony Feor put forward this proposal to have a Pride crosswalk installed in the City of Thorold,” said Badawey.
He added his riding has seen St. Catharines and Port Colborne add their own crosswalks.
“This crosswalk would undoubtedly have a big impact and meaning for the LGBTQIA2+ individuals in Thorold and right across the Region of Niagara,” said Badawey.
