ONTARIO, CANADA- Typically the older signals of Ontario are of the "combo-style" 12"/ 8"/8" set up. The most unusual aspect is the use of yellow on the back plate. Basically the goal is the increase the target value of the signal itself. Yellow attracts attention to the signal, while black provides an empty "space" between the signal indication and background.

WHITEHORSE YT.- In this example of a horizontal signal, note the curved mast and unusual mounting of the two signals. Another interesting thing to point out is the "Canadian-style" symbol pedestrian signals. (Photo by Carla Gruber)
