YYJ Skeptics is a group dedicated to promoting skepticism, science, and rational thinking in Victoria, British Columbia and Vancouver Island.
Our aim is to encourage a rational and inquisitive attitude towards all manner of topics, from the paranormal to alternative medicine, while connecting and interacting with other skeptic groups both in Canada and internationally.
One of our regular events is Skeptics in the Pub (SitP). An informal social event, YYJ Skeptics in the Pub is designed to promote fellowship and social networking among skeptics, critical thinkers, and other like-minded individuals. It provides an opportunity for skeptics and rationalists to talk, share ideas in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, and discuss whatever topical issues come to mind, as well as having fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality. Located in Victoria BC, we have named it the YYJ Skeptics so there will be no confusion with the Australia group.
