By-law harmonization hits a dissonant note - QC’s billboards to be banned

The city of Quebec and groups representing the city’s business interests are clashing over new uniform municipal by-laws slated for all eight city boroughs. A meeting with municipal officials on Thursday left many business groups scrambling to prepare a report for the city-imposed deadline of June 13.

Perhaps a balance is better than no signage at all.  There could be locations designated for signage and the advertisers should need respective town or city approval, to place any signs, with fees payable to the town or city.

This would allow the town or city the option to take down and fine any businesses or persons that put up signs without the proper approvals.
