Guerilla sharrows, the press release

The guerrilla sharrows that have appeared on Lansdowne just south of Camosun College have made the news. A few days ago, the press release from OURS hit my inbox. I have been ruminating on what to do with it since then. I really don’t support what they are doing and I don’t really want to support their cause by publicizing what they are doing. But given the Times Colonist has now covered them, my little blog is small potatoes.

I do have one question however: Why are they attacking the City of Victoria when they painted the sharrows in Saanich? It isn’t like Saanich doesn’t also have a bicycle network plan (PDF, from the Saanich Official Community Plan site). That section of Lansdowne is even on it.
