Local campaign removes '24 hour Surveillance' stickers on Harper's election signs in Calgary

Dec 19 2017, 2:36 am

“24 hour Surveillance” stickers were placed on Stephen Harper’s campaign signs by a local campaign member in Harper’s riding, according to CBC. Consequently, the local conservative campaign is now being asked to remove the stickers.

The stickers are believed to have been placed on the signs to deter future vandalism, as they imply that the signs are being watched 24 hours.

Some would argue that the stickers could have been something an anti-C51 activist would do, but this does not seem to be the case in this instance.

The stickers had started appearing on the campaign signs in Harper’s Calgary Heritage riding this week and it is not known how many stickers had been placed on the signs.

CBC confirmed with the Conservative Party spokesman Kory Teneycke on Tuesday evening that the stickers were indeed put up by a Harper local campaign member.

Vandalism has been a concern for many campaigns and the issue surrounding how to prevent it needs to be addressed, as many signs have gone missing, vandalized or completely destroyed in the past.
