Questionable flyer at forefront of big campaign push

Liberal apologizes for flyer targeting Hudak

The Liberals have apologized on the day before the election, after Vaughan candidate and MPP Steven Del Duca handed out a questionable campaign flyer.

It shows Tory leader Tim Hudak walking away from an exploding hospital, laughing. It's an image stolen from a Batman movie.

Del Duca took to Twitter, calling the move a 'mistake." While out campaigning in East York, Premier Kathleen Wynne called the flyer unacceptable. She says it's not consistent with what the party has been doing during this campaign.

However, Tory Leader Tim Hudak says it's over the top. He says when the premier is just trying to hold on to her job, "it's time to pack it in" calling the Liberals selfish.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath focused on the fact that Wynne is campaigning in NDP ridings. Horwath laughed, claiming this must mean the Liberals think the NDP are more of a threat than the Tories.

      @HP Your silly liberal mind tricks won't work on us! You'd love us to boycott, thus ensuring the fiberals get back in.

      No way in hell.

    First of all, the message conveyed by the picture of Hudak and the hospital is a blatant lie. Hudak has repeatedly pledged that the proposed public sector cuts will NOT touch front-line health or emergency service workers, instead targeting the bureaucrats who provide no useful service for the tax money we pay them.

    Second of all, do any of you know enough about international copyright law to say whether the studio that released Dark Knight could sue for this?

    Third, and I say this as a Hudak supporter and Batman fan: It actually is a pretty damn funny picture.

      @Justin What do you expect from a bunch of liars- to tell the truth?

      Even now, there's word that Wynne will cut jobs just like Hudak. But of course you're not going to hear that from the horse's mouth.

    What a surprise... another photo of Sea Biscuit among children in a classroom. Another old trick taken from McGuinty's playbook. Are Ontarians really dumb enough to fall for this phony nonsense? Yes, that was a rhetorical question.

      @Sully Seabiscuit was a winner, arguably the greatest horse in racing history. Very small in stature but with a huge heart and incredible loyalty. A good comparison with Wynne. Hudak reminds me of War Admiral...a big, stupid loser.

      @HP You obviously don't know much about racing. War Admiral was just as good a racehorse. For the record, Secretariat was one of the best racehorses ever. This is NOT a good comparison of wynnebag. At least Hudak is being open and transparent about what needs to be done to save the province, unlike his rivals, one who has no backbone to make decisions on her own and the other is a lying, thieving spendthrift who doesn't know how to stay within her budget.

    The flyer was deliberate - another one of the lieberal tricks. Send out the flyer and then apologize after the damage to Hudak has been done. The scummy lieberals will do anything to hold onto power and screw Ontario. In Mississauga they sent out a flyer in Tory Blue colors, I guess to make you think , upon receipt, it was fro the Tories, turn it over to see a list of 3 public schools that were closed. All did not have enough attendance to warrant keeping open. The point is one of the school trustees is the Conservative candidate Jeff White. The flyer accuses him as being the one that forced the school closures. Last time I looked there are many school trustees of all political stripe in Mississauga yet he is solely blamed for the school closure.
    Liberal deception, lies and crookedness know no bounds.

      @Frankie You forgot words like:

      'Regret' instead of 'I'm sorry'
      Platform-stealing (gift baskets during ice storm)
      Scandalous (self-explanatory)

      repeated over and over...for the past 140+ MONTHS

    Hudak=Mike Harris. And we all we all know how gutted the province! No thank you. I'll stick with the Liberals...

      @Mark You could just as easily say Wynne = McGuinty. We all know how many promises he broke, how much more expensive he made our lives to nobody's benefit but his supporters, and how many wasteful scandals he was a part of.

      Which would you prefer: A carefully-planned series of cuts over the next few years, or one giant cut, hastily made, when the Liberals realize their policies have doomed Ontario and scramble to find anything they can slash to keep going?

      @Mark Harris was good for Ontario. He did more to save the province than the lieberals ever did. At least Hudak is being OPEN and TRANSPARENT about what needs to be done to save this province, unlike wynnebag, who lies to your face and has nothing to say but "i'm sorry". Don't say sorry than continue to make the same mistakes, just to say sorry again. We have NO time for crap like that while the lieberals ruin this province further.

      @Davandra Mike Harris was good for Ontario??? Are you kidding me! he fired hundreds of nurses, closed hospitals, slashed education spending, gutted our social safety net! All in the name of "common sense" He didn't care how many families he destroyed. His conservative government created damage that to this day is still being felt. Conservatives only care about business and the rich! I'll take the Liberals over them any day!

      @Mark You've really been munching down on shemale bs haven't you? Mike was an honest politician who did exactly what he said he would do BEFORE he was elected. Something lieberals never do.

      @Mark Dalton! Dalton! Dalton!

      Oops...I forgot Wynne wasn't running that tagline anymore.

    Do you think Hudak would sue her for that?

    This election is a farce.

    Vote, then kiss your arse goodbye.

    I'd love to see her in a photo sitting with people that lost their jobs when they scrapped their ONLY profitable partnership (the SARP program). I'm sure the photo outcome and her face would be totally different than one sitting with children. LIEBERALS NEED TO GO!!!!
