Polite sign wars

Candidate signs in Kamloops South Thompson created a stir throughout the election and today volunteers from Todd Stone's office decided to offer a little gratitude at the intersection of Hillside Drive and Notre Dame Drive following his victory in Tuesday nights election.
Throughout the last four weeks signs at that intersection and around other parts of the South Thompson have spelled out messages for voters, from Todd to Vote to a simple smiley face. At one point the NDP got involved, adding messages of their own in what ended up as a war of signs that saw commuters see a different message every morning for several days.
Sometime Wednesday morning crews gathered more of the small signs and spelled out THANK U at the busy intersection near Walmart.
At the time of the first messages the John Ashton, campaign manager for South Thompson NDP candidate Tom Friedman, said the signs were all in fun and part of an ongoing tradition.
