The move comes five months after a crosswalk was painted in Pride colours in Westlock, a town north of Edmonton.

Residents of a small Alberta town will cast their ballots next year on a proposed bylaw that would prohibit social, political, and ideological symbols such as Pride rainbows on crosswalks and public flagpoles.

The move comes five months after a crosswalk was painted in Pride colours in Westlock, a town of 4,802 north of Edmonton.

Westlock Town Council in September received a petition asking for a bylaw that would limit the town to flying only municipal, provincial and federal flags and keeping all crosswalks to a traditional white pattern.
