The Public Places Bylaw only regulates the unauthorized distribution of printed or promotional material on hotel premises. No one can distribute a handbill, like a pizza flyer, on hotel premises without the hotel's permission.
To avoid receiving handbills, hotels must place signs at or near all entrances bearing any of the following combinations of words:
- No Trespassing
- No Peddlers or Agents
- No Advertising
- No Soliciting
- No Handbills
The hotel may also use a similar notice to indicate that they do not wish to have handbills left on its premises. People distributing handbills at hotels without signs will not be punished.
