The Liberal Party of Canada has launched a new series of ads featuring on-the-street interviews arguing "there are over 30 million reasons to vote Liberal ..." The ads are more personal and seemingly unscripted than previous Liberal efforts. Which is why it hurts so much for the Ottawa Citizen - and the New Democratic Party in rapid response - to point out that everyone in the latest ad has a substantial link to the Liberal Party.
