Advertising companies are gearing up to fight the Plateau’s anti-billboard law.

Okay, when does this begin to cost the borough more money that it’s worth?
Right about now.
I doubt this move was ever a high priority of the citizens of the Plateau. Project Montréal could’ve simply said ‘no new signs’ and saved thousands (millions?) of dollars by avoiding a legal battle. This from the party with a tree for a logo; they could’ve just planted huge trees directly in front of the offending signage. Since, as far as I can tell, they’ve failed to plant a single tree otherwise…
Yep, really not a priority. I voted for them, and still vote for them but this is kind of silly. Of all the things that need to be done. It happens a lot, people with great intentions kind of get lost at one point and loose focus.
I do agree that if the fight threatens to become expensive, it should probably be dropped. But on the other hand, why should we be pressured into keeping a market open simply because these big companies can bring a lot of money and lawyers to bear?
Because the borough is on a limited budget and those big companies are not? I agree with you in principle, but we shouldn’t ride our nice philosophy on the back of this micromunicipality. Otherwise, every time a water main breaks we’ll have to tell ourselves: “I’m sure glad that billboard issue has been caught-up in court for lo these six years – so that this won’t be repaired today.”
