...that has popped up on CTBC (the Canadian Tamil Broadcasting Corporation). Its difficult to imagine that the Ford campaign would be stupid enough to have put it together. However, Vijay writes that the local Tamil community plans to raise heck, so perhaps we shall get an explanation soon enough. Probably the most important question is why the CTBC would run such an ad in the first place.
PS. A direct link to the ad is here. It isn't in English, but a translation is provided in the accompanying text:
1st Person: Mani Anna, Who you voting for in the Mayoral Election?
2nd Person: [Laughs] What kind of question is this? I am Tamil. We have a religion and culture. Take Rob Ford for an example, His wife is a women. Thats not only it, he said will reduce Land transfer taxes and other taxes.
1st Person: What about Immigration?
2nd Person: [Laughs] Thats a federal government issue. So, the white people can get our vote.
1st Person: I am also going to vote for Rob Ford.
DISCLAIMER: This is a paid Advertisement
Actually, Ford has said he will eliminate the LTT, but whatever.
PPS. Much of this appeared to break last evening around midnight. Here is a Ford campaign pollster expressing disappointment in the ad. It also looks like the CTBC has stopped running the ad.
