No to attack ads

All of us should denounce the attack ads by the Conservative Party of Canada against Justin Trudeau. This isn’t the Canadian way. It is a carbon copy of American negative advertising and is one thing that honourably distinguishes us from our southern neighbour. This crass form of campaigning adds to the public’s already growing cynicism toward the political class. By tolerating it, we will only turn them off even more. What Harper is encouraging here makes all parties look rotten. Usually, a party campaigns on the failings of the other parties when it has nothing to offer. Is this the problem with the Conservative Party of Canada?
