Why is the snark justified? How on earth would parking enforcement know the situation?


Really? A huge friggin fire within the same area.

Guess it is true, common sense ain't that common anymore. 😞

they did say the tickets will be cancelled BUT you have to go down to city hall and speak them them and ask to get it cancelled... a tourist isn't so likely to do that

 

Maybe if they don't have internet access. Anyone can request a parking ticket review online: https://www.victoria...cket-review.htm

This is why I complain about tourism honchos and their inordinate promotion of comparably irrelevant things out in the remotest reaches of the CRD:

 

 

Mount Tolmie:

This was an amazing treat! After a lifetime of exploring this area somehow this particular location escaped me until now.

from TripAdvisor.com...

Mt Tolmie is pretty amazing. I still think it should have a restaurant up there. And a gift shop with Tolmie Mole Hats. They don't exist but the tourists wouldn't know.

Making a "Mount" out a molehill, eh?

I think the mascot should be a mole marmot that sings jazz named Mel Tolmé*.

 

* I appreciate that most VV-ers are probably too young to get the joke

REALLY... you think VV'ers are to young to understand that joke?

Doesn't the sjw and bicycle lobby complain that we are all just a bunch of old white men?

Are there not tour bus companies that include Mt Tolmie in their itineraries?

The #4 bus also used to have “Mt Tolmie” on their signs but you’d still have to walk a bit to the entrance and then climb up yourself for the view.
