New Ontario Liberal Ad

I actually like this one.  For one thing, it accentuates Tim Hudak's propensity to dorky expressions.  Secondly, the reviews really have been that bad.  The ad doesn't even get to Chris Selley's assessment of the PCPO fiscal plan: we cannot remember encountering such an aggressively stupid political campaign as the Progressive Conservatives are currently running.  Ah well.  There'll be other ads.

The best part of Chris Selley's editorial are they come from a conservative journalist working at a conservative paper. Hudak's campaign will make John Tory's private school fubar look trivial, just watch.

Two years ago, Tim Hudak locked up the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario by promising to do away with the province’s human-rights tribunal.

But Mr. Hudak now has his eye on a bigger prize that will require broader support. So last week, while most everyone was distracted by the final days of the federal election campaign, he risked creating a rift within his own party by making his biggest backtrack since becoming leader.

Mr. Hudak’s address to the Nepean Chamber of Commerce passed completely under the radar. But in the midst of an otherwise unremarkable stump speech, he jettisoned his past pledge to rely only on the courts system to enforce the province’s human-rights code.

In place of that promise, Mr. Hudak offered to “fix” the quasi-judicial system currently in place. By empowering the tribunal to weed out “frivolous” complaints and end the backlog of cases, he said, his party would give Ontario “a fair and balanced system.”

In an interview on Thursday, Mr. Hudak did not offer much by way of explanation for his about-face. He’s “had the chance to travel across the province and speak to various groups, small businesses and individuals about the system,” he said, and decided that making the tribunal more like the courts – including adopting “more clear rules of evidence” – would restore faith in it.
