Red lights and lawn signs… what’s next?

Is this the kind of government people wish to elect, who will trespass on private property, with no permission, for an election campaign?

My husband and I live on a busy street, and have campaigned for the B.C. NDP’s Sue Hammell in the recent election campaign.

To this end we have a lawn sign on our property – small plastic with wire, quite common to all parties.

Imagine our surprise and anger when we noticed this morning, placed directly in front so it was not readable by passers-by, a similar sign advertising for Dr. Amrik Tung of the B.C. Liberals.

Is this the kind of government people wish to elect, who will trespass on private property, with no permission, for an election campaign? To what other illegal lengths might they go?

The people putting up the sign did so without knocking at our door for permission or even acknowledging their presence by a car honk.

I have contacted the Liberal campaign quarters about this, but it seems to me to be another circumventing the law like driving through red lights. And when small laws are violated, large laws could be next.
