Election signs falling down

I have noticed that a substantial number of Conservative Party signs are falling down overnight, like leaves in the fall.

I often drive around the federal constituency of Courtney-Alberni in the mornings. I have noticed that a substantial number of Conservative Party signs are falling down overnight, like leaves in the fall.

Surely the people running the Conservative campaign for candidate John Duncan could borrow a leaf from one of their three utopian opposition parties and learn how to put up signs properly? Their signs stay up.

Sadly, under current law, there is no penalty for putting up signs that fall down.

The law only deals with defacing or pulling down campaign signs which is a criminal offence and can carry a fine up to $5,000 or two years in prison.

The law needs to be amended to repair this deficiency.
