Douglas Todd: Idea of federal apology splits Italian Canadians

Douglas Todd: Idea of federal apology splits Italian Canadians Since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has already offered his apologies to many different Canadian minority groups, some Italian Canadian media outlets have been aroused to express anger that their ethnic group has not yet received one from him. The Italian-language media, which has 25 different outlets in Canada, has been simmering this summer about Trudeau, who has made it clear he will formally apologize only after the Oct. 21 election for the internment of a relatively small portion of Italian-Canadians during the Second World War.

With the provincial election campaign in full swing, signs supporting various candidates have been popping up on lawns and fences all over the city.

One Point Douglas man, however, says an election sign that was attached to his chain link fence – twice in recent weeks – was put there without his permission, and he's trying to figure out why.

Frank Douglas told 680 CJOB he was sitting in the living room of his Burrows Avenue home last week when he saw two children and a woman he believes was their mother on his property.

"I told her 'No thank you', and I didn't think much of it," said Douglas, "until I read this pamphlet that said 'thanks for agreeing to take a lawn/fence election sign for Bernadette Smith and Manitoba's NDP.'

"Well, there was no agreement."

Douglas passed it off as a mistake, until he returned from the lake on Sunday and saw another sign.

"I come back from the lake, and there's a sign ... and one of these notices placed in the door saying that I agreed to it," he said.

"I wasn't in town. How could I agree to something? Why this was targeted twice, I have no idea. I've never had a sign on that property, never had a sign in any other election."

According to the blogger, her mother had told her about unusual election -related message she had received prior to Election Day. Some Trump supporters had been alleging voter fraud in the election since the Republican president himself cited it as the reason he was slated to lose it.

As President Trump continues to dispute the result of the US election , false or misleading posts have been spreading on social media about the vote. Some have been amplified by President Trump and his team, who have called into question the integrity of the election without providing evidence.

Douglas said his concern is that the sign could give his neighbours the wrong idea. His family, he said, has been in the area for 90 years, and is well-known in the community. None of his family members have ever been card-carrying members of a political party.

"The danger I see in this is that I could've been gone the whole long weekend and that sign could've sat own my lawn for days," he said.

"People in the the neighbourhood, who know who I am, who know our family for decades... it could influence people in the neighbourhood, the way they vote, possibly.

"I could have a friend drive down the street and say, 'oh, Frank's got an NDP sign. I'm not sure who to vote for. Frank thinks the NDP's OK, maybe I'll vote for the NDP'."

There's no legislation that covers signs placed on private property. Elections Manitoba told 680 CJOB that campaigns should always get permission before placing a sign on someone's property, and that if it's done without permission, the owner can remove the sign and should contact the party if they have concerns.

On the municipal level, signs are regulated under a neighbourhood livability by-law. An individual can be fined $200 and a corporation $400 for violating the by-law, which says signs can't obstruct pedestrians or vehicles, can't block traffic signs or devices, and can't be placed in a median.

The NDP told 680 CJOB that they make it clear to their volunteers that they mus ask permission before placing signs, and that the incidents involving Douglas are a mistake.
