Police said it’s the second incident of vandalism to the rainbow symbol in seven days

, noting last weekend the pathway was also left with offensive graffiti specifically targeting the LGBTQ community.The Airdrie Pride Society posted on Facebook that it was “extremely disheartened” about the latest vandalism and called it “targeted and hateful.”

Last week, Kutyn said homophobic as well as racist slurs, including swastikas, were painted across the path as well as other areas of the same park.“We just want to highlight that this isn’t only targeted at the LGBTQ+ community - there’s a lot of hate that’s happening.”Police are asking anyone with video footage or who witnessed suspicious activity in Nose Creek Regional Park between 10 p.m. on Friday night and 11 a.m. on Saturday to contact them.

Kutyn said “major contributors” have stepped up to help repaint, and the group has also received many smaller donations. She also noted that Airdrie’s mayor came out to help clean up last week’s graffiti.
