Supporters of the NDP candidate for the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding took over a stretch of highway in 100 Mile House today.
The sign waving event is called a political “Burma-Shave” explains Barbara Hooper, the Manager of the Local Bill Sundhu Campaign Office:
“The burma-shave started many years ago. Political supporters usually stand on the side of the road with signs, music, some singing – stuff like that. The term comes from a company that would advertise its products on the side of the road with signs from 1926 to 1963.”
Current projections for the riding are in flux after a deluge of voters over the weekend cast doubt on whether the existing numbers would remain accurate with potentially higher voter turnout.
