Canada: The city of Moncton, New Brunswick, says it is waiting for the results of a national report looking into the safety of rainbow crosswalks. In the mean time, no more crosswalk will be painted in the rainbow colors chosen to celebrate gay pride two years ago. The results of the study will not be available until 2021. WTF? Is Canadian bureaucracy that bad?
The members of the Moncton area LGBTQ community are not buying it.
"There aren't any other municipalities in our experience that have regressed on their practice of painting rainbow crosswalks," said Charles MacDougall, a co-coordinator with River of Pride.
The city did put up forty rainbow banners on Main Street last year, and they will be in place for this year's Gay Pride Parade. (For the complete story, Click Here.)
