Fake frontpage ad causes political turmoil
The Vancouver edition of free daily 24 Hours on May 1st contained a politcal ad (Paid Advertisement) that caused some political turmoil. In British Columbia the election campaing is now in full swing.
The ad by the Liberal Party looked very much like a real frontpage, which made other parties complain.
Adrian Dix, leader of the NDP “accused the Liberals of creating illusions, and mocked the ad, saying the Liberals had to buy the front page of a newspaper to claim victory in this week’s TV debate.”
