The City of London may be making a colourful statement this summer.
The Civic Works Committee voted unanimously Tuesday in favour of painting two city crosswalks with rainbow colours to coincide with the Pride London Festival’s summer parade.
The proposal was brought forth by councillors Jesse Helmer and Tanya Park, who suggest painting the crosswalks at the intersections of Dundas and Ontario streets as well as Dufferin Avenue and Wellington Road, where the annual parade route starts and ends.
The multi-coloured crosswalks, which have become a trend in other Canadian cities, will likely stay year-round.
Full council will need to vote on the recommendation before it becomes official.
The 22nd annual Pride London Festival is set to run from July 14 to 24.
The parade will take place on the final day.
