beautiful. Toronto is multicultural.
Toronto is friendly.
Toronto is a great city.
However, Toronto is awash with cheap, mostly
illegal advertising, that's starting to cover public space, utility poles,
bus shelters, parks, curbs, lawns. It's not nice! And, it seriously impacts the
reputation of quality advertisers who play by the rules and pay good
money to display their advertisements. While some of the signage may be placed using a city license, it's still ugly and visually polluting. Imagine operating a business specifically created to pollute public space. City officials need to know you find this an unacceptable practice. Things don't get better without direct participation of residents.
Canadians Against Ugly Street SPAM was developed by concerned residents just like you who believe the best way to improve our city is by making everyone aware of the polluting mess Junk Sign advertisers create. This view does not, in any way, infringe on freedom of expression; rather, it limits free advertising - preventing businesses from defacing public property for self-serving commercial free advertising.
