jeffey simspon thinks its terrible that the Tories can pay for truth ads and the grits no longer have the money to put out ads ( except on youtube). Given the extreme bias of the Canadian media against the Tories and the grit publicity department also know as the cbc, it is a good thing that Conservative supporters give money to even the score. I expect to see quite a few Tory truth ads in the next few weeks leading up to the budget.
Liberals, lest they get too precious about attack ads, have also used them. The Trudeau Liberals went after Progressive Conservative leaders Robert Stanfield and Joe Clark. The Martin Liberals ripped Stephen Harper in the 2004 election for his “hidden agenda.” “Going negative” has been part of the Liberals’ arsenal since the age of television began dominating political communications.
The Harper party has taken the Liberal practices two steps further. They’ve launched extremely personal attacks against Liberal leaders between elections, courtesy of the fundraising machine that the Harper party has built. And they’ve used more of these sorts of negative ads than Canadians have seen before.
It is time to donate to the party, let's give the party the money it needs to continue hammering at the truth inspite if a grit biased media..
