The well-financed Conservatives are off to a flying start, with Pierre signs (some of them illegal) sprouting up like mushrooms.
ALL of the parties in Nepean-Carleton (except the ABP Party) seem to have put up illegal signs!
City bureaucrats have decided to look the other way – they know who butters their bread!
Tony: Unreal, the freaking election signs are illegal – anyone wanna go for a pickup truck drive and clean up Bells Corners, starting with the blue and white signs?
The City will not be enforcing the rules for election signs unless they’re placed in a manner that compromises public safety.
The by-law states that signs are not to be erected until 30 days prior to an election. All of the politicians, especially Pierre Poivrière and John Baird, have jumped the gun.
Federal candidates can place signs on the road allowance, but can’t interfere with the safe movement of vehicles or pedestrians.
Election signs must be removed within two days of the election.
– Touching Pierre’s signs would be quite illegal, so count me out. Imagine if you got caught. Pierre would make sure that you’d end up in one the new prisons that he’s keen to build. Jets, jails and junking democracy, isn’t that the Conservative platform?
The photo of Rick Chiarelli in jail has been removed because of a threat to sue my butt off.
Maybe a more creative solution – put up your own sign near one of his. I looked at the rules at the City’s site and it appears to be legal.
TONY: Oh, I wouldn’t actually go out and take ’em down. I can only fantasize about that!
Touching even one sign period would be a bad idea, and I wouldn’t advocate it. I was only joking. I would NEVER do it. HONEST!
I still hate the *!@#$ signs though.
– I’m glad you clarified that – don’t forget that lawyers, politicians, City bureaucrats and even the police are reading this blog, pretending to be working.
Now that you’ve covered your butt, what are you really going to do? 🙂
Don’t be shy about TOUCHING the Pierre signs, as long as you’re just bussing them or giving them a pat – that’s no doubt legal. Even just hitting them gently with a shoe would probably be okay. Urinating on them is NOT okay.
I’ve only had one lawyer’s lame threat and one friendly call from a detective questioning my vandalism post so far, so you don’t have to get paranoid!
