    Just so you know!

    Victoria has best public potty in Canada Canada's best public potty is in downtown Victoria.
    The Langley Street Loo near Bastion Square topped the third annual Canada's Best Restroom Contest.
    It is considered the cleanest and most convenient -- offering round-the-clock relief at no charge.

    This is a great way to see all parts of Victoria. I joined the walks over the special weekend some years ago now, and learned alot about my own city! Met some interesting participants from Europe as well as from North America. A great experience and fun.
