Now that the municipal election season is in high gear in Ontario, the Brockville Police would like to remind all voters, candidates, campaign teams and their supporters of the rules regarding Municipal Election Campaign signs within City Limits.
1) Private Property:
• Prior to election campaign signs being placed on private property permission must be received from the owner/tenant of the property. Signs should be placed in a manner that is safe for all those involved and not cause an obstruction which may create a safety hazard.
2) City of Brockville Property (By-Law #084-1989)
• No permit shall be required for any poster, banner, or sign of a candidate in a Municipal, Provincial or Federal election
• Except as otherwise provided in the by-law, no person shall erect or maintain any sign which projects over any road allowance in the City of Brockville unless such sign is a fascia sign and that no portion of such sign shall project more than .45 metres (18 inches) over the road allowance or City Property
• No person shall attach any sign, poster, hand bill, notice or advertisement to any pole or tree or any highway; or paint or impress anything on any sidewalk or roadway without permission to do so , by resolution of council
• Election signs erected within the City of Brockville must be removed within 2 days following the election.
• No election sign shall be placed within the corner visibility triangle at an intersection. The corner visibility triangle is the triangular area formed by the intersecting curb lines and a straight line connecting them 10 metres from their point of intersection. In simple terms, no roadside election sign can be placed within 10 metres of where the adjacent curb would intersect with the crossing street if the curb line continued straight.
3) Near Provincial Highways (under Public Transportation and Highway Improvement Act)
• An election sign must not be placed upon or adjacent to the right of way of a Class 1 Freeway or a Class 2 Staged Freeway (i.e. 401)
• Election Signs may be erected on the right of way or adjacent to a Special Controlled Access, Major or Minor Highway for municipal elections in accordance with any By-Law outlining a time frame for the placement of municipal election campaign signs.
• Signs up to 0.7 m2 (8 sq. ft) in size must be placed at least 4 m (12 ft.) from edge of pavement. Signs over 0.7 m2 (8 sq. ft) and up to 3.7 m2 (40 sq. ft.) must be placed at the outer limit of the right –of-way (i.e. fence line). Election signs must not exceed 3.7 m2 (40 sq. ft.).
• An “election sign” must not be affixed to a permanent or an official sign or to guide rail or other highway structure or facility and must not be placed where it may interfere with visibility, an official sign, traffic signal, or other safety device.
• Portable read-o-graph sign trailers must not be placed upon a provincial highway right-of-way. Portable read-o-graph sign trailers may be utilized providing they are erected on private property that is zoned commercial and meets all the requirements of the ministry for portable read-o-graph signing.
• A Sign Permit or a Letter of Approval for any signs erected under these instructions is not required.
• Election Signs must be removed from the Ministry right-of-way and adjacent properties within three (3) working days after Election Day.
• Signs not retrieved by this time will be picked up by the Ministry patrol forces and stored in a safe place (patrol yard, etc.) for a period of two weeks. After this time they will be disposed of.
4)Damage, Removal or Defacing of Election Signs:
• The damage, removal or defacing of election can result in criminal charges for mischief to property or theft.
• During election campaigns the Brockville Police Service often receive several complaints from candidates or their campaign offices of election signs being stolen or removed. Most often these acts are not directed toward one individual but rather random acts of mischief. We ask members of the public to respect our democratic process and protect the rights of our citizens who choose to display election signs and the candidates who have chosen to stand for public office.
