The Red Door

Within the confines of a 30 second advert, this is quite brilliant for its stark simplicity.

Focusing attention on the $30 billion F-35 boondoggle and leveraging that as a binary option to the Liberals’ “plan to support caregivers, to improve the public pension system and to help you save on energy costs” is a smart political move.

Broken Party Politics

The first part of a TVO’s series “Politics is Broken.”

Hard to see how Paiken & Co. are going to get four more episodes worth out of this topic. I suspect they may run out of steam after another hour of discourse about the baleful state of Canadian politics and the multitude of possible reasons accounting for the widespread apathy, contempt and thorough disinterest of voters.
