Social Media Buzz

The Liberals have launched a new ad series going negative on the Conservative leader.

In a media statement today, “The Liberal Party of Canada released a series of new English language ads to outline the clear choice Canadians face in this election: move forward for everyone with the Liberal plan, or let Erin O’Toole take Canada back.

The Liberals say, “Thursday’s French language debate proved Erin O’Toole is willing to say anything to Canadians to get elected. He lied to Canadians about his plans to scrap the Liberal ban on assault weapons, he couldn’t answer a direct question on his plans to scrap 37,000 child care spaces in Quebec, and he repeatedly refused to say whether he would open the door to bringing more privatization to our healthcare system. And yesterday, he couldn’t answer questions on whether he would let his Conservative caucus re-open the abortion debate in Canada.”

The NDP leader is in St. John’s talking about healthcare, and specifically dental care.

The Conservatives are also going negative toward the Liberals today…
