Truth and Reconciliation - Crosswalks

City of Saint John paints two orange crosswalks in honour of Truth & Reconciliation

The crosswalks are a symbolic gesture among the many steps the City is taking on our path towards Truth and Reconciliation.

Two City of Saint John crosswalks are receiving an orange makeover today. City crews have been out painting the crosswalks on King’s Square South and at the bottom of Chipman Hill.  

Seven feathers in the crosswalks represent the Seven Grandfather Teachings recognized by many Indigenous communities in Canada. The teachings are love, respect, courage, honesty, humility, truth, and wisdom. The City is grateful for the opportunity to consult and work with Todd Ross, Indigenous Advisor at UNB Saint John and a special thank you to Georgia Strait Road Marking Corp. for the use of their feather stencil for this important project.

Residents are encouraged to view other initiatives the City has undertaken, most recently the employee education campaign on Truth and Reconciliation. Find out more here.
