The Prince George Pride walk was built today near the Days Inn. The walk was unanimously voted in favour at city council. Prince George Pride Society pushed to get the walk built in the community. This is added to the pride flag which is being flown at city hall. The pride parade, which is taking place on July 9th, will certainly be highlighting the new cross walk. Feelings of how the city has changed over the years could be heard while the paint was being mixed. Composed of rock and reflective materials the paint is expected to last longer than traditional cross walk paint even in the winters of Prince George.
The walk was built days after a massive shooting at a gay club in Orlando, Florida which claimed the lives of 49 people and injured over 50. Outpouring of support has been happening all across North America, a vigil was held on Monday May 13 to show support for the victims and their families of the shooting.
