Stratford's refreshed rainbow crosswalk now in place

Crosswalk was vandalized in 2021 shortly after being installed

Stratford's refreshed rainbow crosswalk in front of city hall is now in place.

Damaged shortly after it was installed in 2021, a fundraising campaign was undertaken by Stratford-Perth Pride and Sirkel Foods to pay for a new one.

The new crosswalk is designed with a material that makes it adhere to the road better.

The new crosswalk includes the colours of the six-stripe Pride flag - red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple - a pink and light blue stripe representing the trans community, as well as a black and brown stripe representing queer people of colour. White road paint will be put at each end and the sides of the crosswalk to provide visual safety.
