Lawn signs are illegal

Your humble correspondent is a left-wing, big government, welfare state peacenic.

But sometimes, man, he wants to strangle bureaucrats in the bathtub.

This week it emerged that the ubiquitous Clean Train signs all over Weston are illegal unless the city has given their blessing with a permit. A Bloor street couple was told to remove theirs or face a fine. Someone opposed to clean trains had doomed a complaint and the cut responded by actually enforcing the preposterous law.

Your humble correspondent proposes a campaign of civil disobedience. He is not a lawyer, though he shall be one in his third career (right after he gets picked up by the Atlantic as a Weston correspondent). But he is willing to bet that this is just the law that the Charter was meant to forbid: an abridgment of one’s right to political speech.


Thanks to Ken for the tip.

  1. I received a notice that my sign was too close to the sidewalk and had to move it closer to the house….no one has ever asked me to remove it.
