Oak Bay firefighters responded to a four-car crash on Oak Bay Avenue Sunday afternoon.
The crash happened around 1 p.m. when the driver of a Subaru had a problem either going into a parking spot or leaving it, said Lt. Duane Adsett.





it’s like Mardi Gras up there.

This "mobile Irish pub" is getting a fair amount of media attention locally: https://thewildrover.ca/

COVID restrictions create uncertainty, confusion for Victoria bars and restaurants

 

Business has been quiet at the Fernwood Inn since Thursday when provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced that social gatherings with anyone other than your immediately household are off the table. ­Typically heading into ­December, the pub would be booked out every night with Christmas parties of up to 50 people mingling in the private booking space. Now, sales are 80 per cent less than a typical season and most of the tables are filled with parties of two or three, said Fernwood Inn general manager Mike Colwill.

Butchart Gardens can’t operate an outdoor, timed entry garden space over many acres, but restaurants can still welcome dozens of people into confined quarters with patrons sharing bathrooms and sitting feet from each other for extended periods.

Can someone explain to me why Magic of Christmas got the axe but Walmart sees tens of thousands of people per day, as does Costco and SuperStore?

I’d be willing to believe that if liquor stores and pubs were forced to close.

Because the system is rapidly destroying everything that is humanizing and redeeming, while also preserving & emphasizing anything that is not?

Excuse me, but I am not asking for responses that require me to reflect upon the social experimentation taking place hand-in-hand with a corporate profiteering agenda totally a-ok'd by provincial and federal leadership at the expense of independent retailers that make up the backbone of the Canadian economy.

 

And you're totally giving me anti-we're all in this together vibes, dude.

At the very least, you should be thankful for this.

Is that not essential?


Christmas and Vegas are pretty much the same thing

I don't think there has been a time in recent memory when the "sheer pleasure" of the Christmas/holiday season has been more essential than this year.

Why close the liquor stores?  It's not like people hang around in them for any great length of time...other than the staff, of course.

Rain Dogs has its sign up and window coverings down. There were a few people chatting inside. I'm assuming this will be opening fairly soon.
