Should this Burlington resident be allowed to keep a homemade election sign on his OWN lawn?
The municipal ‘red tape factory’ doesn’t think so!
Here’s the story, courtesy of the Burlington Post (you can read the full piece here):
A Burlington resident and the city’s bylaw enforcement are at odds over a homemade sign lobbying against one of the provincial parties.
Louis Magyar, 60, created a 4’x12’ sign this spring, stating “Stupid is as Stupid Does: Go Ahead Vote Liberal” along with a list of reasons he feels the party can’t be trusted.
He erected it on the front lawn of his Mount Forest Drive home more than two weeks ago.
A PC party-issued Jane McKenna sign is also displayed on his property.
A city bylaw officer issued him a notice this afternoon to take the homemade sign down by Sunday afternoon or face a fine.
