That’s what Ontario NDP Andrea Horwath said. That’s a quote. Then, this afternoon, Toronto Star veteran Richard Brennan spotted this in Ottawa.
Bottom line? Either Horwath didn’t mean what she said, or her followers don’t listen to her. Neither possibility is helpful to her prospects.
Personally, I’m interested in how widespread this distasteful practice is. If you spot another example of an NDP campaign trying to profit (politically or otherwise) on the passing of Jack Layton, let me know in comments or at email@example.com. Then I’ll post what you find.
Oh, and Andrea? This is one of those reasons why so many regard your leadership as a great big disappointment.
