Fake Friday: Use Of Wingdings Font May Hinder Candidate's Chances
Wingdings is a TrueType dingbat font included in all versions of Microsoft Windows from version 3.1 onwards and was originally developed in 1990 by Microsoft by combining glyphs from Lucida Icons, Arrows, and Stars. Independent candidate John Black is disappointed to learn of his typo on the election campaign signs, but is confident voters will see past his Wingdings characters and really appreciate his serious stance on provincial infrastructure development, health care, taxes and education initiatives. "Please look past the Wingdings and realize I am committed to serious change in this province." Black exclaimed. No plans have been made to fix the Wingding signs as Black's promotional budget has already been used for the current signs.
