MRU opens Calgary’s first permanent Pride crosswalk

August 31, 2018

Mount Royal University students, staff, and faculty have stood together to celebrate the opening of Calgary’s first permanent Pride crosswalk. MRU reports that the campus crossing is a sign of its commitment to creating a respectful and inclusive campus for everyone. “All of the colours combine to represent our pride,” said MRU Provost Lesley Brown. “The pride flag also represents some big words: Bravery. Courage. And the strength that it takes to ‘come out’ – whoever you are and whatever ‘coming out’ means to you.” The cost of the sidewalk’s installation was covered by local Calgary business Zoom Painting, which says it will refresh the colours annually free of charge for five years. MRU | Global News| The Star Calgary
