Rainbow booster

Editor:

Re: Looking for rainbow reversion, May 29.

Recently, my dear friend from Mexico stood upon that rainbow crosswalk and had his picture taken because he was so proud to be connected, even only as a visitor, to a country full of people who showed their appreciation for diversity and minorities through the rainbow symbolism of the crosswalk.

I am so very grateful that he left a few days before your letter was printed. It would have shamed me to have him read that not all Canadians are open-minded and open-hearted.

Might I add, I am also very grateful that I will not find myself shopping in downtown Castlegar and run into you for as long as that beautiful rainbow crosswalk is there. In fact, if it fades, I just might offer to cover the cost to repaint it.
