article imageNasty election signs appear in Toronto day before election

By Andrew Moran     Oct 24, 2010 in Politics
Toronto - One day before voters head to the polls to take part in the municipal election, election signs have appeared all over the Greater Toronto Area and are taking aim at all of the candidates, including Rob Ford and George Smitherman.
Digital Journal reported earlier this month on the election signs that attacked frontrunner mayoral candidate Rob Ford by calling him a “wife-beating racist drunk.”
Toronto voters head to the polls on Monday and it is expected that the race for mayor will be a close call. One day prior to the election, nasty campaign signs are appearing all over the Greater Toronto Area from Etobicoke to Scarborough.
According to CTV Toronto, homophobic posters of Smitherman popped up overnight along Danforth Avenue near Victoria Park. The posters included a photo of mayoral candidate George Smitherman and his husband Christopher Peloso with the words: “Should Muslim vote for him who married a man?”
This comes as the Canadian Tamil Broadcasting Corporation published ads on its radio station and website that called for Tamil residents to vote for Rob Ford because he married a woman.
Nevertheless, this has not bothered the Smitherman campaign. Smitherman called it “blatantly homophobic” and “will remain focused on offering a Toronto that finds strength in our diversity and builds for the future, not divides.”
Meanwhile, anti-Rob Ford signs were found on Allen Road, reports the Toronto Star.
It is unknown who is responsible for all of these defamatory election signs.
