Port Alberni RCMP are looking for the vehicle that may have damaged the city’s rainbow crosswalk.

Police describe the suspect vehicle as a Ford pickup truck, dark in colour, with a suspension lift kit, after market rims and an LED light bar mounted on top of the cab.

The damage to the crosswalk took place on August 10.

The crosswalk, which is located on the corner of Argyle Street and Fourth Avenue, was painted in 2017 after a fundraising campaign raised more than $2,000 to show support for the city’s LGBTQ2+ community.
