HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s capital is considering restricting flyer and ad mail delivery, potentially joining other Canadian cities that give residents the option of vetoing the uninvited paper clogging up their recycling bins.

Halifax councillors will discuss a proposed bylaw Tuesday that would prohibit distributors from delivering flyers and ad mail to homes displaying a “No Flyers” sign.

(...)Similar bylaws restricting flyer delivery have been passed in other cities including Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal.
