Doug Ford has had more illegal campaign signs removed than any other candidate

Doug Ford has had more illegal campaign signs removed than any other candidate

Doug Ford, true to family tradition, appears to be having trouble following Toronto’s strict election laws. The Star reports that city bylaw officers have removed 336 “Ford for Mayor” lawn signs that had been placed illegally. (There are very specific restrictions on where election signs can be put.) Olivia Chow and John Tory have had only 25 and 21 signs removed, respectively. Ford’s spokesperson claims that the illegal signs are being placed, for the most part, by overenthusiastic supporters who aren’t officially involved with the campaign, which may or may not be true. But the problems with Ford’s ground game don’t end there: according to Now Magazine, some of his lawn signs are being installed by alleged drug dealer and extortionist Sandro Lisi.
