Looks like the same grammatically-challenged individual has a hate-on for Captain Cook as well:






So, was he a murderer of assholes or was he an asshole, and a murderer?


In either case I am not sure that he deserves such hatred.

I think he means to address any readers who also happen to be murderers.


"Capt. James Cook was a(n) asshole, murderer."


If you're not a murderer then the message is not for your eyes.

Maybe they want the city to put in this style trash can for dumping?: http://www.amazon.ca...N/dp/B005C8SIO0

A local artist will immortalize Victoria’s most marginalized groups as part of a new city program to beautify graffiti hotspots downtown.

Twenty-two-year-old Jesse Campbell is one of six local artists and 18 youth who have been selected to create murals downtown and in Victoria neighbourhoods as part of the Create Community Colour Mural Program.

The program, a partnership between the city and the United Way Greater Victoria, pairs professional artists with two or more youth ages 14 to 20 to collaboratively produce 10 colourful murals.

Campbell will incorporate urban contemporary and geometric pieces on the back of 506 Fort St.

This anti-graffiti is becoming a graffiti unto itself.  ^_^

Vandals have stepped up their “tagging” attacks on downtown heritage buildings this year, causing thousands of dollars in damage and forcing the city to shell out more money for cleanup.


Councillors approved a $20,000 grant to the Downtown Victoria Business Association this week to help it stay on top of the problem.

Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers

Downtown Victoria is seeing an increase in criminal mischief in the form of Graffiti and sadly it has happened to numerous heritage buildings and iconic murals. We here at Crime Stoppers refuse to call this art as it’s nothing more than a criminal act.

The paint being sprayed on them is degrading the brick work and paint, with city workers being put at risk in the cleanup operation.

Over $1 million a year is spent cleaning up graffiti in downtown Victoria alone, and now historical buildings and true art, are being destroyed because of it and you the tax payers are covering the clean up costs.

We want to call upon our fine law abiding citizens of Greater Victoria to help stop these criminals from destroying our beautiful city of Victoria, and anonymously report Graffiti Criminals to us.

If you know a person who sprays Graffiti and you want to tell us, click the 'Contact Us" button above or call 1-800-222-8477.
'Like' our page to show your dis-like for crime.

Below are pictures from a local heritage building that was damaged by a criminal. We have blurred out the tag as to not give the criminal the recognition they so desire.

My first thought was that it was a nice bit of modern art added to an otherwise faded building... then I read that the pixelation was done to the image. Darn. I'm a fan of street art with aesthetic merit, and enjoy seeing the changing murals along the E&N, but spraying your name haphazardly along a facade is just lazy work. With the parkour skills you need to get to some of these tagging spots you'd think they'd make more of an effort on the graffiti itself.
