Happy Christmas to all poinsettia haters and lovers alike.

 

But it wouldn't be Christmas Eve without spoiling the dreams of little seven year-old boys, right?

Here's another VV Christmas rerun from 2010:

 

Santa Claus and his magical reindeer are due to arrive in Victoria in a few hours and officials from the City of Victoria are ready to welcome the jolly old elf to the capital city.

 

In fact, only a few routine pieces of paperwork need to be completed before Saint Nick can complete his task of bringing toys for the region’s boys and girls.

 

First off, permits from the City bylaw department allowing temporary exemptions from the performing animal bylaw need to be acquired so that Rudolph and company can legally work the skies. A special event permit application and an exemption from the City’s noise bylaw will be needed so Mr. Claus can “Ho, ho, ho” in residential areas. A short-term heritage alteration permit allows the sleigh to sit atop Victoria’s treasured heritage homes without fear of altering the roofline, even temporarily. Fortunately, as Santa’s sleigh normally carries no passengers, he may not need exemption from the City Sightseeing and Tours bylaw governing animal-drawn transport. Santa will also need flight clearance from Transport Canada and NavCanada and pre-registration with Border Services. The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority will grant a temporary docking exemption so Santa’s sleigh can temporarily park alongside harbour floathomes.

 

Local, Provincial and Federal spokespeople say that if the file is fast-tracked, permission could be granted as early as March 2011.

All of us here at Vibrant Victoria thank you for reading and participating and we wish you a safe and vibrant 2011! VV
