Conservatives want independent to stop advertising

Independent candidate ordered to stop putting up signs

An independent Calgary candidate has been ordered to temporarily stop putting up his election signs due to similarities to the Conservative party posters.

The Conservative party is seeking a court injunction on Roger Richard’s signs erected throughout the Calgary Northeast riding.

The signs use the same shade of blue, similar white lettering and a red banner in the top left-hand corner. Richard’s signs also have the word “Conservative” printed on them.

On Thursday, a Calgary justice barred Richard from raising any new signs or handing out campaign literature until a decision is announced on Monday. Signs already posted can remain.
