Strategic Bombing

In what’s Rami Tabello is calling a “complete victory for Toronto,” the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has ruled that outdoor ad company Strategic Media, among other offenses, “over the last year or so…began erecting signs without obtaining permits.” Not that great of a strategy, really! In spite of Strategic’s not-yet-resolved constitutional challenge to the City’s sign by-law (which we explored the legality of in May), the court ruled that the City can begin removing Strategic’s many illegal billboards across Toronto. Councillor Howard Moscoe, who we like more and more every day, told the Post that “we will go out and take them down and charge them on the tax bill if they don’t take them down themselves.”
