Meanwhile, members of the local Liberal and NDP camps are crying foul over what they say is a disregard of York Region's rules that only permit election signs on regional roads 28 days prior to voting day which, in the case of this year's Oct. 21 federal election, means that Sept. 23 at 10 a.m. is the first day campaign volunteers can bang signs into the ground.

Brown's election signs began popping up at regional road intersections on Sept. 12, the day after the writ was issued, signalling the start of Canada's 43rd general election.

"It's disappointing that the Conservative campaign is deciding to ignore regional and municipal bylaws that are meant to apply to everyone," Liberal campaign spokesperson Cameron McNeill said. "We intend to run our campaign in accordance with the rules, and we hope that Ms Brown's campaign will decide to do the same."
