Letter: Crosswalk proving divisive

'The rainbow crosswalk seems to be more a symbol of exclusivity for the LGBTQ community than inclusivity for all Canadians.'

Dear Editor,

Regarding the rainbow crosswalk, spending an unnecessary $50,000 now, and then another equal amount in maintenance every three years is fiscally irresponsible.

Further, the rainbow crosswalk seems to be more a symbol of exclusivity for the LGBTQ community than inclusivity for all Canadians.

Is it the role of our municipal government to use tax dollars to advance social ideologies of their choosing?

I believe they may be opening a can of worms.

Canadians are all under the same Maple Leaf flag and all should be treated equal.

Let’s spend our money wisely.
