Students spearhead installation of crosswalk commemorating Indigenous reconciliation

A new crosswalk commemorating Indigenous reconciliation in Canada has been approved for installation in Burnaby. Westridge Elementary School’s Grade 6/7 students spearheaded the recommendation for the project. The class partnered with Kwantlen First Nation artist Atheana Picha, who will design the artwork for the crosswalk. While the design for the crosswalk is still in progress, it will most likely feature an eagle and Coast Salish form lines. The artwork will be installed on a residential street in North Burnaby, where the low vehicle traffic will allow for a more complex piece to be installed without significantly increasing maintenance considerations.
