ELECTION SIGNS ON COUNTY ROADS

Vision (Canada) - - Actualités | News -

The pu­blic works de­part­ment for the Uni­ted Coun­ties of Pres­cott-Rus­sell (UCPR) has a re­quest for a change to the UCPR si­gnage by­law. The change, if ap­pro­ved, would ban election si­gnage along county roads. The is­sue will come up for fur­ther dis­cus­sion at the June 27 re­gu­lar ses­sion of coun­ties coun­cil. Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties may choose whe­ther or not to ban election si­gnage along their own streets but the mu­ni­ci­pal by­law would not ap­ply to county roads. The cur­rent UCPR by­law does not for­bid election signs along county roads, in­clu­ding those sec­tions which pass through mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties. – Gregg Cham­ber­lain
