Not an election sign, but much more amusing
I arrived in Montreal just in time for the most exciting municipal election campaign in decades. All at once, a bit too early for Halloween, all of City Hall’s skeletons fell out of the closet, with revelations that construction contracts are rigged and accusations that the municipal government works primarily around a system of bribes and kickbacks. From what I saw, though, this year’s campaign posters are not nearly so dramatic.
The catchiest and best-looking posters belong to Projet Montréal, which adopted a motif of superimposing a Polaroid depicting candidates or a rosy post-Projet future on scenes of the city. Posters for the other parties and candidates range from uninspired to unintentionally amusing, like those for the Montreal Pride Party, about which everyone is confused (is it a gay rights party? Or just a party for people proud of Montreal?).
Projet Montréal promises a future full of families
Proud in which way?
