My hat's off to the Harbour Authority for the new signs they have posted on the Causeway. The city has a traditionally negative approach to the public's behavior (No Skateboarding, No Rollerblading, No Bicycle Riding, No Hacky Sacking, and my favorite community spirit killer in public squares - NO Loitering). Conversely, the new Harbour Authority signs encourage positive behavior rather than forbidding negative activities. And instead of that daunting red circle with a bar across it we have green and white images that suggest users of the causeway should carry their skateboards or rollerblades, walk their bicycles and keep their dogs on a leash. Much better!
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
