Scott Anderson, British Columbia Conservative Party candidate for Vernon-Monashee, has put a challenge out to other candidates to minimize sign pollution.
"We saw in the last election how tired people are of signs plastered everywhere and blowing around in the streets," said Anderson. "This election we've made the decision to keep sign use reasonable."
Anderson's campaign will use a few large visible signs and the occasional smaller sign along main streets and feeder routes in the riding to maintain a presence, but otherwise signs will be used on supporters' private property only.
"I understand that we all have to get our message out and that signs are a necessary evil," said Anderson.
"But I challenge other candidates to keep Vernon beautiful by not plastering them everywhere."
