Ontario Progressive Conservatives Go Gay Bashing

The article from Xtra is fairly in-depth. The most interesting bit:

Liberal spokesperson Alicia Johnston says the flyers were distributed in English and Punjabi in a Brampton grocery store...

...which reminds me of this incident from the Toronto mayoral race, in which somebody ran ads on Tamil Radio bashing (gay) candidate George Smitherman.  Clearly, there are some elements of Ontario's South Asian community that will respond to this kind of false material (check out these twitter feeds for just some of the inaccuracies in the flyer), and it looks like Hudak and Co. have decided to target their vote.

I hope that whoever picked this up did what most people do with flyers -- throw it in the trash.
