TORONTO, July 23, 2013 /CNW/ - In an Open Letter to Elections Canada,
OPC is asking for an official opinion on the issue of Government
Advertising from two perspectives: (1) does the enormous amount spent
on 'Canada Economic Action Plan' alone constitute 'political
expenditure' on the Conservative Party's account, infringing the
fairness of political financing regulations, and (2) does a direct
payment from the Government to a media corporation constitute an
interference in the democratic process, as media is supposed to act as
an objective watchdog, reporting on government affairs.
Advertising spending ranks the Canadian Government among the largest
clients of the media corporations who are arguably less inclined to
criticize their profitable client. Conversely, the Government's
protective actions towards the Telecom oligopoly giants who own media
outlets might be the root cause of the notoriously poor and expensive
Canadian telecom services.
