This week Graeme and Josh look at Ontario government and party ads, including how recent changes to legislation may have affected fundraising and rules for both types of ads. But first, Josh gives us an update on the Gas Plant Trial. At the end we also discuss what the hell a Red Tory means, and if Patrick Brown is right to court this elusive voting bloc.
Here’s a Globe and Mail report, backing up our one claim made in today’s podcast, showing the lion’s share of third-party ad spending was directed against the Ontario PC’s last election.
You can also check out Josh’s and Graeme’s latest columns at Loonie Politics, “The PC Party of Ontario’s Plan 9 From Outer Space” and “Wynne Needs to Spend $5.5 Million on Hydro Ads to Combat Fake News” respectively.
