Okotoks' Pride crosswalk was defaced last night.

The Town of Okotoks shared the news on their Facebook page this afternoon.

"The Town would like to take this opportunity to remind the community that we value equity, diversity, and inclusion where every person has a right to equal treatment, and where we are strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. Building an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community that is collaborative and supportive of all residents is a priority and marginalization is not tolerated" reads the post.

According to a representative from the town, RCMP notified them that white paint has been spattered across the Elizabeth Street Crosswalk.

The crosswalk has been cleaned.
