For months now, there’s been an attempt to get a couple atheist bus ads up in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Well, CFI ponied up the money and the ads are now back on two buses. They’ll be there for two more weeks.
“Kelowna is the only place, as far as we know, where the ads have been removed; and they have been run all over the world,” says Centre for Inquiry spokesperson Guy King.
Investigators still have no idea who the vandals are, and King can only speculate.“I’d like to see whoever removed the ads come forward, and maybe reimburse us for the additional cost,” he says.
What a horrible policy on the part of the advertising company: You vandalize signs you don’t like and we’ll… make the customers pay for the replacement.
It’s just an incentive for the vandals to do it again.
Incidentally, CFI Okanagan is holding a contest for anyone who can get a picture of the ad on a bus — take the picture, post it on their Facebook page, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for some nice prizes.
If you want to take that picture, I’d suggest getting on that ASAP. Call it a hunch.
