Motorists travelling on the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 in Milton, Ont., just west of Toronto, on Friday morning saw the name of the James Snow Parkway exit sign changed to the Jon Snow Parkway.
The name James on the sign was temporarily replaced with Jon — a reference to the character Jon Snow on the popular HBO series – ‘Game of Thrones’, July 28th, 2017.
A spokesperson for Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation stated the sign was vandalized sometime early in the morning.
The sign was back to normal by about noon Friday and provincial police, who were notified about the incident, say they will continue to monitor the area.
The parkway is named after James Snow, an Ontario politician who served as a Conservative MPP for the area from 1967 to 1985.
