Vancouver city hall posts Olympic rings upside down

Behold, the official City of Vancouver Olympic Lane sign.

Yes, you'll see these around the city wherever the lane restrictions exist. It'll be the express lane for the Olympic family, security vehicles and certain Coast Mountain bus routes from Feb. 4 to March 1. Taxis and public vehicles are not welcome.

When these signs are displayed in the new year, you can bet they'll be affixed properly to poles. This one is upside down and facing the wrong direction.

Yes, the Olympic rings are upside down in the Olympic city, across the street from city hall.

The same building where councillors spent most of Dec. 3 debating amendments to controversial bylaws aimed at protecting the Olympic rings and the International Olympic Committee's sponsors.

Only in Vancouver.

Olympic lane sign at 12th and Cambie.
