Victoria: If you think the federal election is droning on, you’d be right, at least in suburban Victoria.

Drivers stuck in rush hour traffic between Victoria and its West Shore suburbs on Wednesday afternoon were treated to an unexpected display.

A remote control drone was flying an election banner above the slow-moving vehicles.

The banner was for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke Conservative candidate Shari Lukens, although it’s unclear if the drone and banner were officially connected to her campaign.

One commuter who posted a photo of the drone on Facebook says it certainly gained attention, with many drivers taking notice. (CFAX)
