The Ministry of Transportation has issued the following statement:
With local government elections approaching, candidates across the province are erecting signs on public property, including highway corridors.
For safety reason, it is important that candidates follow guidelines for posting election signs on highways rights-of-way. These guidelines are outlined on the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure website.
To help inform candidates, it would help if municipalities could share the link to the guidelines on your websites.
