Rainbow Crosswalk Completed

The weather co-operated for the installation of Vernon's first rainbow crosswalk.

It was set for Wednesday night but has been bumped to Thursday night on 30 Avenue, between 33 Street and 34 Street.

All costs and time for the project have been donated by Caliber Sports Systems, HUB Surfacing Systems and Square One Paving.

The rainbow is meant to symbolize pride within the LGBTQ community.  Company owners stepped up to take on the project and say Vernon should feel safe for everyone and people's differences should be embraced, not feared.
