Rainbow + Trans Crosswalks for Coquitlam

This petition had 308 supporters

Nicola Spurling will be speaking before a Coquitlam City Council Standing Committee, September 11th at 2:00pm, in favour of a rainbow crosswalk and a trans crosswalk for Coquitlam.

The Tri-Cities don't have a reputation for being queer friendly, but that's not the case. A symbol like this will show marginalized people that diversity is accepted and wanted in Coquitlam. To make that message abundantly clear, it's important that these symbols be placed in visible and high-traffic areas.

Whitehorse became the first city in Canada to install a trans crosswalk, and Coquitlam has the chance to create a legacy by installing the first in British Columbia.

Some proposed locations:

Pinetree Way @ Guilford Way
Pinetree Way @ Glenn Drive
Pinetree Way @ Lincoln Avenue
Marmont Street @ Brunette Avenue
