A spokesperson from Regina Public Schools released the following statement:

"The Rainbow Crosswalk painted by students at École Harbour Landing School demonstrates their honest desire to make all students, residents and visitors in the Harbour Landing community feel like they belong, like they are welcome and that they are safe. Vandalism to a crosswalk, or to any public structure in a community demonstrates one individual's fundamental disrespect and disregard for that community and its residents."

This is not the first time in Saskatchewan that a rainbow crosswalk has been defaced.
