Edit: Apparently Guelph city bylaws allow these signs on the day of the writ. Odd that only the Green Party was privy to this change.
Even Mayor Cam Guthrie questioned this move and had to backtrack his statements as Guelphlocal.com is now doing.
Question – were the other political parties informed of this change? Given the feedback on social media, apparently not.
Either they don’t know election laws, or they don’t care. Bad optics to kick off an election breaking electoral laws Day One of a federal campaign.
Both MPP Mike Schreiner and federal candidate Steve Dyck publicly politicking before the writ is officially dropped.
Says volumes on the values Guelph should expect in their campaign.
