What to do? Well, for one thing, I doubt they’re intended for broadcast, as they’d never pass the advertising standards stage. But if I’m wrong, and if they show up anywhere on-air, I’d just have Ignatieff say the following, over and over, from coast to coast:
“Stephen Harper is a liar. He is a liar.”
At that point, the Cons have three options. One, they can sue, but Ignatieff would win; truth is a defence. Two, they can stick with ads that are utter bullshit, and consider the prospect of their leader being branded a liar. Or, three, they can pull the ads, and live to fight another day.
Stupid, stupid, stupid. Wow.
