New rainbow crosswalk in Burlington encourages community’s inclusiveness
A new rainbow crosswalk has been installed at the Burlington intersection of Plains Rd. W. and Botanical Dr.
The intersection is right outside the main parking lot of Royal Botanical Gardens. The Aldershot Village BIA calls it, “a great addition to Plains Road as we welcome the community to Aldershot from the west.”
According to the City of Burlington’s media team, more than 4,000 people completed a survey in the spring to let city staff know they were in favour of more rainbow crosswalks throughout the city to support Burlington’s 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
Let's brighten this rainy day!
