Recently, there have been some derogatory remarks regarding the Rainbow Sidewalk project that was approved by Aurora Town Council and will be installed in late August in our downtown core at Yonge Street and Wellington Street. The Town of Aurora is a community that embodies diversity and inclusiveness, and is committed to the Inclusion Charter initiatives of creating a sense of belonging in the community and reducing hate crime. The Town is focused on creating an environment where everyone is equal, and the approved Rainbow Sidewalk project shows Council’s support for the LGBTQ+ community. We support living in a harmonious, cohesive environment where we all have the utmost respect and honour for each other. Any forms of racism, hatred or bigotry towards others in our community and our country will not be tolerated.
