Signs of (Eventual) Lawfulness @ the CBC

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about The Social Responsibility to Follow the Law.

Today I learn that, until recently, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s HQ in Toronto featured a very large illegal billboard:

That sign has now come down.
The sign was illegal because you need a permit for such signs in Toronto, and CBC didn’t get one. Then, when the city gave the CBC fourteen days to take the sign down, they didn’t. They left it up for another year. And according to this website, a lot of the signs in Toronto are illegal. Some don’t have permits, and some have permits that were fraudulently obtained (by giving false information on permit applications).

Thanks to my pal Paul, who writes a blog about life, the media, and everything.
