Why Does Sher St. Kitts Get Special Treatment?

Signs on Town Property


A reader sent another snap of a new sign that popped up at the Church Street School/Cultural Centre. 

The sign was plunked down on the lawn of the building on Wednesday July 28th —  just two days after a similar sign was removed — after public outcry — from its illegal location at the Town Park. 

It’s yet another very large sign advertising the Jazz Festival.  

Here’s the problem. The Church Street School is also a Town owned (though not operated) property.  

The question remains, “Why is an advertisement for a commercial venture allowed to be erected on Town Owned property?”  

A simple answer? It isn’t.  

Follow the logic people.  If it wasn’t allowed to be on the Town Park property, because the Town Park is Town property, then it isn’t allowed to be on the Church Street School property, because it is Town owned property.  Pretty straight forward don’t you think?  

But yet there it sits. Town by-law staff should have removed it.  

The question that should be asked is, “Why haven’t they?”

    This is truly disgusting. Seriously. It’s bad enough to have ineffective local politicians, but to have people in office who are also dishonest enough to use the position for their own gain and that of their friends is simply ludicrous. I am shaking my head.

      The crowd looks a bit sparse in those photos. I wonder what the attendance was like. Was there enough business for all those vendors?

    Why haven’t they? – you ask; because they fear for their jobs, no doubt. Mess with Mor Mac or St. Kitt’s and you are out! It’s that simple.

    Two sets of rules…. One for the Mayor and her sheep like Sher, others for normal residents of Aurora.

    Is it election day yet? Time to take out the trash!
