PC Ads: Despicable

Have you seen the new PC TV ads? One implicitly blaming McGuinty for thousands of Ontarian deaths due to smog and for not closing coal plants (which the PCs will not do), and the other blaming McGuinty for all murders committed by people out on bail? No real solutions proposed in those ads of course, just reckless negativity and totally unwarranted accusations.

These commercials have brought the PC party down to a brand new low. John Tory: Taking advantage of other’s misfortune for his own benefit.

I’m sure we’ll see much more of this (and worse) from “classy John” as the campaign wears on. He sure has kept his promise to bring things up to a new level hasn’t he?

Murder Victim's Family Attack's Tory's "deceitful" Crime Ad.

From today's Toronto Star:

But not all victims of crime are pleased that Tory is using them as props in his bid to win the election.

"It's very deceitful. It's totally inappropriate," Audette Shephard said about Tory's announcement yesterday and his new television ads that show a roadside memorial of flowers and a stuffed animal with the slogan, "Justice matters."

Shephard's 19-year-old son, Justin, was shot and killed in 2001.

"I do have a lot of respect for John Tory and for Dalton McGuinty and Howard Hampton. If they want to attack each other's policies, then that's fine but when you bring tragedy into it, (it) really leaves a bad taste for me," Shephard said.

"Tragedy is not a political game and I don't think someone's tragedy should be used in that kind of fashion."

Shephard doesn't hold out much hope for Tory's proposed reward program either.

Justin's murder remains unsolved – despite a $50,000 reward offered by the Toronto Police. It was later raised to $100,000 by his half brother, NBA star Jamaal Magloire.

"They had $100,000 and still people refused to come forward and I know that there are people that know," she said.

"It's very frustrating. I get very angry sometimes when people think throwing money at people is going to bring justice," said Shephard, a founding member of United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere.

Dalton McGuinty promised to close coal plants, make our streets safer and not raise taxes.

He didn't do those things and, as the ads point out, we are reaping the consequences.

Reality suck, but it is the reality of a Liberal Ontario,

Well the reality is that things are better. And crime is DOWN in case you didn't know. The Liberals are cleaning things up and improving the Ontario that was left a mess after the Tories. So I think the reality of a Liberal Ontario is much better than a Conservative one. Why else is John Tory running as far as he can from that record?
