Wynne on billboard: all parties need to follow the rules

Liberals complain about NDP by-election advertising

The premier says all parties are expected to follow the rules.

Kathleen Wynne made the comments as the Ontario Liberals accuse the NDP of breaking campaigning finance laws with a billboard in the Niagara Falls by-election.

Wynne says she not only expects here party to follow the rules but everyone else as well.

She was at a by-election event in Thornhill when asked about the advertisement.

Liberals claim the large billboards featuring NDP Niagara-candidate Wayne Gates and NDP leader Andrea Horwath violate the Elections Finance Act.

The new billboard was erected during an advertising blackout period.

    the only reason why Wynne bag is bitching about it is because NDP is telling the truth about the liberals . a very rare thing these days .

    Do those rules include instructing the OPP to stand down while someone is almost beaten to death by a native?

    Do those rules include "stealing" $ 1 Billion to save a couple of seats?

    Do those rules permit a salary increase to teachers when the government claims no increases are permitted?
