Travelling, but coming back

Re: Tent peddlar travels on, April 12-18

It is important to iterate that I am not “travelling on.” Travelling, yes, though not as a part of just “passing through” Victoria. Victoria is my home, I’ll die here. It is also possible I’ll be going back to jail as soon as I return, which will be dependent, in part, by the response this tour gets in all the other provinces. That is to say, if it looks like multiple provinces and cities start taking the legal route to municipal public tenting zones, I may hold off on getting arrested right away.
