Allowing the City of Surrey and politicians to post signage using ‘H’ stakes – but seizing others – is criticized.

LETTERS: Signs of inequality pop up in city

An open letter to the City of Surrey.

Last spring, city bylaw officers seized $200 worth of advertising signs on city property.

An open letter to the City of Surrey.

Last spring, city bylaw officers seized $200 worth of advertising signs we had placed on city property.

The signs were promoting an art show by a local non-profit organization.

I was told by the bylaw department that the law applied equally to everyone, though I mentioned countless numbers of other signs which remained on city property.

I was told that the metal “H” type of stakes we had used were an issue because of a pending lawsuit against the city.

Since that time, I have seen the same type of signs and stakes used by the city itself to promote events in the city.

The first two were events at the South Surrey Recreation & Arts Centre.

The latest was the “Voting Place” signs the city used last week to indicate polling stations for the election.

And, of course, there has been a proliferation of the same type of signs erected by candidates for office.

How many of these signs were seized by city bylaw officers?

Where is the justice?
