BONOKOSKI: Muzzling of Ontario’s political attack dogs only days away

There is a double-edged sword when it comes to third-party attack ads during election campaigns in Ontario.

Partisan politicos love them when their arch rivals are being cut to shreds, but equally hate them when their own party is being sliced and diced.

And it is not exactly small change being thrown around.

    The Globe and Smell is reporting that another factory is closing in Toronto. Just another successful effort for Trudeau and Wynne to make Mexico great again.

      Yes, Reynolds (not part of the primary aluminum company any more) has been gradually consolidating its roll foil and foil packaging operations in Louisville Ky over a number of years. Pretty eye opening if they couldn’t still make it work here with our 30% cheaper dollar tossed into the mix. Maybe the machinery was obsolete and there is spare capacity down south.

    The three so called “main parties” deserve our contempt not our support. That just leaves supporting individuals in individual ridings who have done their best as MPPs in very trying circumstances. Plus supporting candidates of smaller parties in ridings where the big three candidates are all pusilanimous vote whores.

    If only Horwath wasn’t with the wrong party. She’s the only one of the three that shows any semblance of leadership qualities.

    On the bright side, businesses might wise up and move to the slightly less commie provinces.

      I’ve seriously considered emigrating to Saskatchewan.

    Hard to believe Ontario used to be the flagship province of confederation.

    the limits on third parties isn’t going to work, there isn’t going to be one attack group, there are going to be many attack groups, and the number of them funded by mandatory union contributions, isn’t going to go down.

    until you put an end to either mandatory “contributions” for union members, or prevent unions from funding third party advertising, nothing will change.
