Atheist ads back on the bus

Bus ads prompting Kelowna residents to question the existence of God will end their run this weekend, after a long and tumultuous ride on city buses.

Bus ads prompting Kelowna residents to question the existence of God will end their run this weekend, after a long and tumultuous ride on city buses. “The atheist bus campaign has been a long uphill battle,” said Loren Price, of the Centre for Inquiry (CFI) Okanagan.

“B.C. Transit first denied our right to run the ads, then threatened to pull the ads at the first sign of trouble, and finally appeared uninterested in fully investigating the disappearance of the original ads from their own property.”

Between a two week period in April and another in July 2011, the ads will have had a full month of exposure.

CFI has now launched its follow-up Extraordinary Claims Campaign, to place the message: “Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence: Allah Bigfoot UFOs Homeopathy Zeus Psychics Christ” on buses across Canada.
