Police are investigating black paint spattered on a Pride crosswalk in Lethbridge.

A substance that police initially described as “tar and manure” was dumped on the Lethbridge Pride crosswalk on Thursday but, after investigating further, police said it was actually black paint that had been strewn across the colourful street crossing.

This wasn’t the first time in Lethbridge:

It was the second time this week that crosswalks meant to celebrate Lethbridge’s LGBT community were damaged, as the city prepares for its ninth annual Pride Fest, which gets underway Friday.

Lethbridge mayor speaks up:

“If this was something that was done deliberately to target Pride Fest and its members, it is incredibly disappointing to see a segment of our community treated with such disrespect,” said Mayor Chris Spearman.

“Lethbridge is a welcoming, inclusive city, and the act of one or two ignorant people doesn’t change that.”
