Inquiring minds want to know: Why no election signs

Where are all the election signs, you may be asking?

If you drive through Cranbrook you will see municipal election signs popping up all over, yet Kimberley remains sign-free.

Are we just slow to get started? No. In fact, candidates in Kimberley are not allowed, by way of the City sign bylaw, to put up signs until October 20.

The bylaw was updated in 2011 and a time period for temporary signage, including that for an election, was established.

Signs were actually put up too early by all candidates in contravention of the bylaw during the 2011 election campaign, but it was pointed out to candidates in the 2014 campaign that the dates had to be honoured.

Expect to see signs popping up in Kimberley on October 20, 2014.
