With only two weeks left in the federal election campaign, the major parties have taken off the gloves. TV and radio commercials which had initially presented each party’s unique vision of a happy, healthy and prosperous nation under their government, have now grown scary. The campaign no longer offers voters a chance to elect a government they want. Rather, the ads are intended to frighten people away from each party’s rival. However, some are so negative, they may discourage people from voting altogether.
Here are some excerpts from several ads:
"He will remove your children and sell them for medical experiments!"
"And a whole lot of cussing in church!"
"Or did he? Better watch you back Mr. and Mrs. Ontario!"
"And it won't be the sexy futuristic femme-bot love-warriors he promised last election!"
