In light of the Ontario Police union openly campaigning against the PCs (see here) what also needs to be exposed is that many journalists covering this election are also funding political attacks against them as well:
Unifor kicked off a Southern Ontario ad campaign Monday, denouncing Ontario Conservative Leader Tim Hudak and his opposition to government subsidies for Chrysler Group’s multibillion-dollar investment at its plants in Windsor and Brampton. (see here)
What the reporter doesn’t mention of course is that Unifor represents many in the Canadian media like Bell Canada which owns CTV and the Globe and Mail.
And besides the ads, their president Jerry Dias is given op-ed space in the Star to bash PC leader Tim Hudak during the election:
If Tim Hudak becomes premier, Ontario will see unprecedented job cuts, health-care cuts, education cuts and the decimation of workers’ rights.
For those who value decent jobs, good health care, strong communities and a bright, stable future for our children, the primary objective in this election must be to keep Hudak from becoming premier. (see here)
And here’s a photo of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau chumming it up with Dias:
