Hunt on for Best of the City

Our annual survey inside today's newspaper

We want to know the best of everything Victoria has to offer, so we’ve turned to the experts: you.

That’s right – we’ve decided that our readers are the most knowledgeable about our city and can tell us a thing or two about what makes Greater Victoria the best place in the world to live.

So help us out with our 17th annual Best of the City survey inside today’s paper.

“We want to encourage everyone in Greater Victoria to appreciate all the beauty, people and places that make our community great, and salute them in a special way,” said News publisher Penny Sakamoto.

This year’s survey takes an annual pulse of Greater Victoria, asking readers to tell us what they like, what they love and what they’re passionate about in our great city.

Among the questions we’re seeking answers to is where is the best place to find a mate, the best place for afternoon tea and the best place to improve your smile.

And, of course, we’re asking one special question: What’s the best thing about Victoria?

The award winners will be announced in June and published in a special newspaper supplement – just in time for you to visit all the best places this summer.

But we wouldn’t expect all this work for nothing. All readers who complete the draw will have their name entered into a draw for $100.

Get out those pencils, pens or felt markers and fill out the questionnaire in today’s paper. The survey will also run on March 11, 16 and 18. Surveys can be completed on line at

The survey deadline is Monday, March 21.
