Seen the ads where Harper goes on about playing cards with his kids and such? Motto- “Family is everything”. I guess you’re nothing in the eyes of the prime minister if you don’t have a family.
A lot of people complain about mainstream politics and how only the very well connected can get the corporate help to actually run a campaign. I don’t mind so much where the money comes from, but it really bothers me that %99 of the ads have nothing to do with politics and %0 mention anything specific (unless its an attack ad, then its specific and out of context).
I wonder if the leaders would be more reluctant to spend obscene amounts of money on television appearances if they were forced to say something politically meaningful in these appearances.
