City of Toronto cracks down on illegal concert posters


The City of Toronto is cracking down on illegal concert postering. And guess who's set to pay the price? NOW reports that local venues can be get fined up to $500 if by-law officers see posters on light or hydro poles, parking meters and bus shelters.

The poorly advertised by-law came into effect in 2010 and instead of tracking down the bands that put up the posters, venues are being held accountable since they are the easiest to track. Some Toronto venues are challenging the crackdown, including Lee's Palace and Clinton's. For more, check out the full story in NOW.

What do you think? Is this a fair strategy?
