toronto election signs

Toronto house has the weirdest Ontario election signs

Never are front lawns more adorned with colourful plastic than in the weeks heading up to an election — save for Halloween and Christmas.

Ontario is now only one day out from its 2018 vote, meaning that our neighbourhoods are once again packed with shades of red, orange, blue, green and Zod.

The signs, found in front of houses; in the windows of businesses and on the sides of buildings, are political, but they also look a bit festive when taken in altogether, don't you think?

Taking a closer look, the signs actually advocate against PC Party leader Doug Ford with the help of Sci-Fi fantasy characters, a bunch of dismembered plastic body parts and some gross goblin things.

Upon close inspection of the Junction Triangle property, one can find about a dozen characters on display.

Among them are a suit with Darth Vader's head on it...
