Signs spark debate on Twitter

District of Oak Bay: Candidate pleads for rivals to abide by policy of no signs on public property

Campaign signs sparked a Twitter conversation this weekend between a handful of Oak Bay council candidates.

Incumbent Coun. Kevin Murdoch tweeted a photo of the signs along the boulevard of Cedar Hill X Road reminding fellow candidates in a plea for candidates to abide by Oak Bay’s “no signs on public property” rule.

Oak Bay’s sign bylaw prohibits political signs on public property. Specifically, political signs can’t be erected more than 30 days prior to election, must be removed within seven days and can’t be put up on public property or where they interfere with traffic safety.

Staff at municipal hall take a practical approach, they say, to the bylaw during election time. Unless there’s a specific complaint or traffic safety concern most signs are left alone.
