To follow up on Barbara Holmes's latest blog entry, Denise Lash was recently interviewed by the Canadian Press on the recent decision by Heritage Minister James Moore's intention to back a private member's bill that would prohibit anyone from barring the display of the Maple Leaf flag.
Denise stressed that for condominiums owners it is important that if the bill is passed, that safety restrictions are discussed by condo boards:
“I’m thinking not just of ... flags displayed all over the building and how that would impact on someone wanting to purchase in the building, but also the liability issues with hanging flags and poles off balconies,” said Lash, who writes frequently on condo law and was host of MondoCondo TV.
“There are restrictions on putting flowers on your balconies or patio furniture and that’s done for the purposes of the aesthetics of the building, but also for liability issues with something falling off.”
The Canadian Press interview was picked up by a number of newspapers, but you can read the article online via the Hamilton Spectator.
