In an article on the riding of Ajax-Pickering, the Globe and Mail’s John Ibbitson goes out of his way to mention this about the Conservative’s candidate Chris Alexander:
“Mr. Alexander has been avoiding national media exposure lately, perhaps as a result of a YouTube video in which he appeared to suggest poverty had been eradicated in Canada, at least as defined by the World Bank. He later explained he was comparing poverty in Canada to the much greater problems of Afghanistan.” (see here)
But doesn’t bother to include that Liberal Mark Holland was caught handing out an edited copy to the media (see here).
