Alan Shefman was at a City of Vaughan meeting where this was discussed but may not have been paying any attention as he spent more than an hour playing with his Crackberry. Whether he was playing online games or answering official Vaughan business is unknown.

Maybe we should all schedule a book burning at his home to show our support of his efforts to suppress the Canadian Constitution.

StopLook.ca Supports Tim Horton’s Camp Day. Stop at Tim Hortons, have a coffee and support camp day.
Wednesday, June 6 is Tim Hortons Camp Day! Camp Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons Restaurants is donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
On Camp Day, when guests buy a coffee and participate in various fundraising activities, they will help send more than 14,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. Campers aged nine to 12 years attend a 10-day summer camp session or a seven-day winter camp session, at one of the Foundation’s six camps in Canada and the United States. Children are selected by Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.

Plateau Mont-Royal, a borough of Montreal, plans to implement a complete ban of billboards and other out-of-home (OOH) advertising, under which some 45 existing signs are to be taken down over the course of the next year.
A bylaw prohibiting the installation of new ad-based billboards, which the borough’s elected representatives consider ‘visual pollution,’ was passed in July. This move was then followed in September with a vote to also have existing OOH signs (example pictured) removed, beginning this month.
Jeannot Lefebvre explains the Regroupement de l’industrie de l’affichage au Québec (RIAQ), a trade association he represents, is responding to the threat by trying to establish a more business-friendly compromise.
“We’re very surprised,” he told Le Devoir, “especially since the district recently changed its rules to ensure the display ad companies had location certificates.”
Billboard bans are rare in Canada and this is reportedly the first in Quebec. One notable example has been Oakville, Ont., where many legal disputes have ensued.

Kensington's Garden Car
Kensington's Garden Car
Kensington's Garden Car
Our beloved Garden Car, who has become as much a part of Kensington Market as the wonderfully eclectic residents and shopkeepers that make the market so vibrant, is looking for a permanent new home.
Since June 29th, 2006 when she was created one fine rainy afternoon on Augusta Ave., the Community Vehicular Reclamation Project has helped open many eyes and hearts to the the idea that the vast amount of public space dedicated to …automobiles can be used in many creative ways.
Although city council, in 2008, permanently approved the display of this piece of public art in the public right of way (street) from May to October during the Pedestrian Sundays season, after 5 years the time has come for the Garden Car to retire to a permanent resting place.
Do you have a spot on your property where she could stay a while? Someplace where people could still pass by for a visit? A large garden plot where she could slowly be grown over and settle in? Or some such retirement spot…?
Please post this on your wall and help us find a new home for the garden car by the end of November!
Expressions of interest can be made by telephone to Shamez Amlani at 647 444 7426, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the most common requests we have at StopLook.ca is for information on the city of Vaughan mobile sign by-law. We also get requests for the sign permit application. These are on the city of Vaughan web site but they are difficult to find so we have the links.
Vaughan Mobile Sign By-law is currently impossible to find. The web site materiel is 3 to 15 years out of date. The link will be added here when the city of Vaughan supplies the necessary information.
Activist Standing. Activist civic groups sought to challenge variances allowing billboards. Held: Under the PA state law for Home Rule Cities, as amended 2003, standing (the legal right) to challenge variances is limited to persons who are personally aggrieved, i.e., who can show an interest that is substantial, direct, and immediate. These activist groups cannot make such a showing, and thus have no standing. The 2003 amendment abolished “taxpayer standing,” and overrides Philadelphia city law. Spahn v. Zoning Board of Appeals, 977 A.2d 1132, Pennsylvania Supreme Court, August 18, 2009.
