A rainbow crosswalk was painted in White Rock’s Five Corners neighbourhood Saturday.
White Rock BIA president Ernie Klassen, real estate agent Louise McKnight and her mother-in-law Ruth Allard pitched the idea of a rainbow crosswalk to council last May.
After hearing the presentation, Mayor Wayne Baldwin suggested council support and fund painting the rainbow crosswalk.
A motion from Coun. Lynne Sinclair to have the crosswalk painted was unanimously endorsed.

Great to see @whiterockcity support for a 🌈 rainbow cross walk at its @FiveCornersWR area. A symbol of inclusiveness and diversity and one of the reasons that makes this city a great place to live, work and visit.#Pride2018 pic.twitter.com/R2R0qfm1pW
