Chinatown Street Signs

We don't need "multi-language" (whatever THAT is), but we clearly do need someone with better a command of the English language on the forum. Your post is borderline unreadable - and ranting about the NDP on here won't help you an iota on that front.

As to the Chinese font used - a bigger issue might be that the dominant population in Chinatown from mainland China uses simplified Chinese.


Bah! lol. So does e-bashing my post make you feel better about yourself, or that 'moderator' title under your name?

Exciting times you are in ;)
For your record, here are the rules:

- Use the English language. If we can’t understand it we will delete it. And use proper grammar. Again if we can’t understand it we will delete it.

Quite frankly, if I am really ruthless with it, half of your postings on here would have been consigned to the trashbin on that reason alone. Calling other members who stayed on topic as "NDP-esque posters" might be cute the first time - but seeing it in every other post of yours is just getting tired. Consider yourself on notice.

I know no one has replied to this thread in a while, maybe a little off topic.

But to respond to the original post, I really love the Chinatown street signs in Toronto, a great sentiment to Chinese immigrants in Canada. The old hand painted ones have quite a character, and I must agree the new oversized reflective ones with the modern typeface certainly are not as nice.

I have a couple of Chinatown streets signs in my collection that are some of my favorites, including one of the newer ones, I'll attach some photos if anyone is interested in seeing.
