Ask and You Shall Receive
Today, Philip Chin from the Canadian Atheist Bus Campaign sent me a link to FLIKR pictures of the Atheist Bus ads on the side of some TTC busses.
“I think the pictures add a degree or normalcy and tangibility to the campaign. Once people see the ads running for a few weeks in Toronto without any problems, hopefully they’ll be more receptive to us in other parts of the country,” said Chin in the email.
Check out the slideshow here.

The Little Campaign that Could
Well there seems to be quite an uproar in Ottawa about the Atheist Bus ads.
Early last week, Ottawa was picked to be the next city for the Atheist Bus Campaign.
OC Transpo rejected the ads, and the Freethought Association faces a lot of challenges ahead before the campaign gets approval in Ottawa.
The matter will be further explored before full city council next Wednesday.
The ads were expected to roll out on Toronto buses this week, but I haven’t seen one yet. Here’s hoping.
The Internet is Neat
I’ve been cited/crosslinked. How weird to be looking up sources for my current Atheist Bus in Ottawa story and find one blog post attributing the news to my Atheist Bus story.
Don’t Worry, Just Enjoy Life.
The Freethough Association of Canada wants to put Atheist advertisements on the side of OC Transpo busses.
