"receive the complaints from residents who are "very, very upset."

Mississauga News - Oct 25, 2006 - By Louie Rosella

Residents upset about councillor's signs

The City of Mississauga has received numerous complaints from residents accusing Ward 5 Councillor Eve Adams and her campaign workers of placing election signs on their properties without permission.

Mayor Hazel McCallion said yesterday she's continuing to receive the complaints from residents who are "very, very upset.

"I have had people call me and e-mail me indicating that, according to them, she put up signs on private property without their permission. They're very upset about it," the mayor said. "Some of them told me they tore them down. They are still calling me."

Adams defended herself last night, saying if signs went up on lawns without permission, it was a mistake.

"If a sign has been put up in error, I apologize and (the homeowners) can call me and I will make sure the sign is removed," said Adams.

Of hundreds of Adams' signs erected, the councillor said she has received "less than 10" requests to have them taken down.

"There is no need to offend a voter by putting up a sign without permission," said Adams.

Despite the complaints, McCallion said there is nothing the City can do about it.

"It's entirely up to the citizens," said McCallion. "If a sign is put on their lawn, they have the right to remove it and throw it in the garbage, or call the candidate to come and remove it."

Adams said last night neither she, nor her campaign workers, would knowingly put up a sign without the property owner's permission.

A Leatherleaf Dr. resident, who asked not to be named, e-mailed The News this week saying he awoke to find an Adams election sign on his front lawn.

"I was outraged and removed it.  At no time did we discuss placing a sign on my lawn," he said.  "What I also noticed was that every single home on our street had a sign in front of it."

McCallion said she hasn't received any similar complaints regarding other councillors.

Adams said when she goes door-to-door, she's told by residents that other Ward 5 candidates are wrecking her signs and putting up their own without permission of homeowners.
