Libloggers review the new LPC Quebec ads.

Dion and the The Liberals have released 3 radio ads in Quebec to help bolster the sagging hopes of Stephane Dion and the LPC. Below are the reviews from a couple of prominent Liberal bloggers on the subject.

Antonio from Fuddle Duddle has his take here. A couple of notable quotes: "Did we just witness the same election in Quebec as Stephane Dion? I think the message Quebecers sent is that they want to get rid of the federalist/sovereigntist debate, not elect the poster boy for one of the sides, nor the poster boy (Gilles Duceppe) for the other…"

“If Stephane Dion and the Liberals are attacking Stephen Harper, is it because they are afraid of something? Afraid that Harper has delivered on his promise to Quebec to fix the fiscal imbalance? Afraid that Harper delivered on UNESCO? Afraid that Harper affirmed the status of Quebec as a nation within Canada? Afraid…to stay out of power?"

Be sure to check out the comments, in what has already been a very bad week for Jason Cherniak continues as Antonio smacks him around a bit more.
Jason Cherniak a dit...

Your criticisms of the ads might be fair, but your complete obstinancy on this stupid "fiscal imbalance" thing makes it difficult to know for sure.

Try to at least think about the other side of the argument.

remember Jason, these ads are aired in QUEBEC, where the population does not believe the fiscal imbalance to be a myth.

Also, Harper promised to fix it...

You heard Flaherty. It's fixed!

Maxime Bernier C'est fini!

La Presse "Le dossier est réglé"

everybody and their dog believed the fiscal imbalance existed here in Quebec.

well except one person...and his dog too...

And why don't they believe it's a myth? Maybe because no provincial federalist party made the effort to show that the separatists were lying?

Accept the premise of your opponent's argument and you will always lose.

jason by that logic, your opponent can never be right...which proves your logic to be that of a partisan hack.

It means your thinking is governed not by your own morality, but by that of the party's...

Calgary Grit gives his opinion here on the ad campaign.

My favorite quote from CG: "I'm sympathetic to the fact that most of the people who used to handle our Quebec ads are in jail these days but surely there's someone in the province who could have done better than this?"

On Liberal seems like some are editing their blogs cause they can't take the heat generated by posts espousing opposing views. Jay removed a post made by Tim D after Tim D had called Jay on misleading, inflammatory, altogether partisan and mindless comments Jay posted in response to Tim's comments.
