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.”

According to Vanvouver newssite News1130 the ad was the actual front page in the paper edition, in the electronic edition it is on page 36. The e-edition can be viewed here.
