Our Turn to Lead?

Really? It might have been "Our time to lead" or some other such banality ..... BUT ... the thing is that in ten seconds or less the advertiser pretty much shot the whole wad on a most blatantly presumptive assertion .... assumption ....

As I was dozing off last night I was clicking through the TV channels during a late night commercial break.

The odd thing that caught my attention for about 10 seconds (the duration of the bit I saw) was an advert for the Globe&Mail online....

A Red and white logo reminiscent of Liberal Party election banners rampant beside a series visual bits showing the usual sort of shiny multi-culti and youthful faces you might expect from an ad campaign for any Canadian publisher or liberal election office pushing the "We're the real Canadians!" line.

I guess then that the gloves are off?

Since the G&M is no longer offering any pretense to be something other than the liberal voice of Canada .... marketing arm and electioneering office?

Now I am not surprised by this ... or not much surprised ... but ... really!

Just what do they hope to achieve? Perhaps the folks at the G&M would like a new tag line?
I'd suggest .... "Subtle is not our thing!"

I also wonder just what it would take to get elections Canada to investigate the Globe and CTV and CBC for illegal donations in kind for the billions they've contributed to the LPC in free advertising and electioneering.

Check out the Globe logo Here if you don't mind contributing an iota of a cent to their advertising revenue.

While Elections Canada is at it, they should take a look at Corus Radio Network (CJOB), Quebecor Inc., Quebecor Media Inc. and Sun Media Corporation, all of which are big time contributors to the LPC cause.
