In light of the recent shooting in Orlando, Florida, I was proud and honored that Maple Ridge demonstrated respect and kindness and embraced the LGBTQ+ community by raising the Pride Flag at Maple Ridge city hall. I also look forward to Maple Ridge joining the many other communities with the implementation of permanent rainbow painted sidewalks to show support for the LGBTQ+ community. Maple Ridge is an inclusive city, in which tolerance, equality and respect towards one another are valued. I look forward to observing the Pride Flag raised until Canada Day and throughout Pride Week in July at city hall as well as our city’s new rainbow sidewalks.
