Orange Crosswalk

orange crosswalk

An Orange crosswalk has been installed at Lakeshore and Nelson in honour of the children of the residential school system. The crosswalk acknowledges the strength and survival of residential school survivors, and honours the victims, their families and communities. The crosswalk is phase one of a larger public art project that is being installed with support from a grant from the Hamilton Halton Brant Tourism Relief Fund.
