Have they gone nuts?

Posted on Mon, May 4, 2009 at 12:58 PM

Why is it illegal to poster on telephone poles in the HRM? (except for those collar things or those kiosks... of which there are maybe 10) I just posted at least 20 posters last night and they're all gone by this morning. Its a fucking poster, not only is it ridiculous for these to be illegal, its also a direct violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I read somewhere that the HRM spent 300,000 dollars in 2000 to enforce this law. They seriously couldn't think of anything better to spend this money on? I also read somewhere that you can get a 215 dollar fine for being caught "illegally postering". Has this city gone mad?
