Unoffical Tribute Stops

We have discovered other signs around the province that are not part of the official BC Stop of Interest program. Communities have created their own series of signs to point out local features and events. Inspired by the provincial program – some even have a similar look. If you have spotted a rogue sign, please feel free to submit a comment with the historical sign copy and a photo.
