Group seeks to fly rainbow flag at City Hall

Published on

Members of the Sarnia Pride and Transgender Association are asking council to formally recognize June as Pride Month in Sarnia and fly the rainbow flag at City Hall.

A delegation is expected to tell council May 6 that such a designation would help commemorate community members who have died or suffered through hate crimes and the AIDS epidemic, and honour their achievement in advancing human rights.

If the city’s single-flag policy can’t accommodate the request, the group says, the city could alternatively change the outside lighting at City Hall to rainbow colours and fly the flag at secondary locations.
