NDP radio ads in Northern Ontario break Horwath's Personal Commitment
TORONTO, Sept. 3, 2011 /CNW/ -
For the second time in just three days, Andrea Horwath broke faith on
her personal commitment to ban pre-election political advertising.
New radio ads featuring Horwath's own voice are running today in
Northern Ontario (CJTT-FM in New Liskeard). These ads join a
pre-election television ad released by the NDP Thursday.
Horwath promised two weeks ago to ban pre-election advertising:
"I'd impose a blackout on political advertising before elections...for
political parties, and for interest groups."
(Andrea Horwath, August 19, 2011)
On Thursday, Horwath's Communications Director Jen Hassum vehemently
denied the release of the NDP's television ads constituted a breaking
of Horwath's personal pledge. (Jen Hassum Tweet, September 1, 2011).
What will the NDP say now that they have been caught a second time?
