Toronto Billboard Tax Hearing this Morning

The voting on the new sign by-law and $10.4 million billboard tax being presented at Toronto City Council begins at 9:30am.

Last week the Out-of-Home Marketing Association of Canada (OMAC) launched an outdoor advertising campaign that opposes the new sign by-law and billboard tax being presented at City Council. While an EKOS Research poll found that 70% of Torontonians support such a tax, OMAC believes it will cripple the outdoor advertising industry, and negatively impact the advertising and marketing community, local charitable groups and small business owners who earn important rental income from billboard signs.

We will keep you up-to-date on voting results as they come in.
