An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
SINCE I WAS LESS than complimentary about City council’s dithering on the rainbow crosswalk, it’s only fitting that I comment on the solution arrived at by staff.
In short, administration offered council two options yesterday that really came down to one option, and it’s not a bad one.
Instead of the $10,000 originally estimated, the cost has come in at $6,000, including high-end, long-lasting paint. Two potential locations were identified — 2ndAvenue and Seymour, and 5thAvenue and Victoria Street.
