Lethbridge, Alberta – Lethbridge Police are investigating a report of vandalism to the Pride crosswalk downtown.
Earlier this morning an employee with the City of Lethbridge reported that manure and tar had been spread on the rainbow crosswalk at the intersection of 3 Avenue and 6 Street South.
At this time the investigation is in the very early stages and there are no additional details or information to release.
Statement from Lethbridge Mayor Chris Spearman:
“If this was something that was done deliberately to target Pride Fest and its members, it is incredibly disappointing to see a segment of our community treated with such disrespect.
Lethbridge is a welcoming, inclusive city, and the act of one or two ignorant people doesn’t change that.
As a community, we will continue to embrace and celebrate diversity, and we encourage everyone to come together for Pride Fest events in the coming week.”
