Election Signs in Guelph

I've driven all over the city in the past week, and I've been monitoring the appearence of election signs. Interestingly enough, the Green Party was first out of the gate, and I think they have between 100-200 signs around the city... mostly lawn signs along the main arteries or in major intersections. Our guys were second out of the gate but slow off the mark, as the NDP then passed us with large signs in most major intersections within 3-4 days of the writ. We've since killed them, with likely 300 some odd signs throughout the city, large and small.

The Liberal Party, with a sitting MP? Eight. 8. Huit. That's it. I've been watching for a week and a half now. I can tell you where every single one is. And they're all lawn signs that look like they've been pulled out of the home owners garage from the last time around. NONE on the major routes, no large artery signs, zip, zilch, nada.

Maybe, like in Quebec, they're having trouble finding people willing to give them the time of day to go out and pound them into the ground?

Just a thought. A happy one mind you, but still just a thought.

    I hear you on that. I live in the riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands. Currently, the NDP have posted the most signs here, with 10-15 small, lawn-size signs. The Conservatives, who have the incumbent MP in the riding, have 5-10 large signs. As for the Liberals? ZERO. Not even ONE, measly election sign. I'm not exactly sure what their strategy is, but let's hope it doesn't work.

    I'll just say be careful, it is an old Liberal trick to hold off on putting up their signed then over a weekend all of the Tory signs will "disappear" only to be replaced with bright shiny new Liberal ones.

    How stupid would someone have to be to base their vote on what signs are staked out around their town?

    Never Mind.......
