It will begin to look more like a civic election is fast approaching around Winnipeg today, as campaign signs are now permitted to be placed throughout the city.

Signs for mayor, councillors and school trustees will begin filling yards and other grassy areas in their respective wards.

The campaign signs are permitted temporarily on public property under two different city by-laws, but must adhere to guidelines. The signs have to include the name and telephone number of the person responsible for placing the sign or causing it to be placed in its location, and the date the sign was erected.

But don’t think you can plant a sign wherever you please. A number of streets are off-limits.

All signs must be removed by November 3 — seven days after the October 27th election.
