This past weekend, Richmond’s first ever permanent rainbow crosswalk was completed by city crews.


“Check it out on Minoru Boulevard + find more #PrideWeek fun and events listed at (link: http://www.richmond.ca/prideweek) richmond.ca/prideweek” reads the tweet put out by the City of Richmond.

Back in June, Richmond city council approved the installation of the new crosswalk with a motion that passed 8-1.

However, the new rainbow crosswalk did face some opposition from members of the public.

It was estimated that the crosswalk would cost taxpayers approximately $15,000 to install, which many residents were displeased about.
