Premier's message on rainbow crosswalks appears to contradict N.B.'s transport minister

There seems to be some mixed messaging when it comes to rainbow crosswalks in New Brunswick.

Premier Brian Gallant posted a tweet yesterday saying municipalities are allowed to paint rainbow crosswalks after they said the province had recommended they should not.

Gallant's statement seemed to contradict what the province's transportation and infrastructure minister said in a letter to municipalities in March.

The letter recommended that the municipality's locally designated highways follow the requirements and guidelines set out by the Transportation Association of Canada, which specifies that crosswalks are to be painted white.
